By joining our volunteer family, you will support our compassionate mission and experience many ways to give that are both meaningful and enjoyable!  Use the filters to the left to find volunteer opportunities that interest you and fit into your life. 

Patient Support Volunteer Services

As a patient and family support volunteer, you bring comfort and a compassionate presence to a terminally ill patient and their caregivers, while visiting in the patient’s home setting or a care facility. Volunteer requests from our hospice care teams include providing companionship, relief time for caregivers, assistance with errands, transportation to appointments or offering vigil presence for dying patients. There are also administrative opportunities to support this program.

Non-Patient Support Volunteer Services

You don’t need to volunteer directly with patient and families to make a big contribution towards our mission. Non-Patient support volunteers help us in other ways at By the Bay Health. 

  • Fundraising support opportunities such as 
    • annual gala
    • administrative support
    • annual gift wrap fundraiser
  • Sewing of personalized “comfort bears” supports grieving children in our Bereavement Counseling Program

Hodgepodge Thrift Stores

Our Hodgepodge Thrift Stores located in San Rafael and Novato use volunteers to support their retail services. Become part of a fun team as a greeter, pricer, merchandiser, cashier or sorter. Make new friends and assist customers while benefiting support services for our patients and their families. Customer service or retail experience preferred. Open 5 days a week, many shifts available.
