Hospice House - The Josie Harper Residence

Volunteer Coordinator

Location: Omaha, NE

Placement Type: Indirect Service

Concern Area: Health Care

Hospice House's mission is to embrace residents living with terminal illnesses, and their families, with quality end of life care and to provide end of life education in the community. Hospice House opens its doors to people who are unable to afford the cost, including people with limited financial resources, homeless individuals, and undocumented workers. While other facilities have limits on the number of beds available to people who are unable to pay for their care, Hospice House has never set such limits. The volunteer carries forward an already established volunteer program; recruits, assists with volunteer education, schedules volunteers, collects data, and prepares simple reports of volunteer house.  Additionally, the volunteer supervises the volunteers, offers hospitality, schedules entertainment in the facility, and plans volunteer appreciation events and volunteer in-service education opportunities.  Interest in end of life care and a willingness to engage with residents and families/friends facing terminal illnesses, and self-initiative are good skills to have. www.hospicehouseomaha.org
