Become a Volunteer!

Compassionate, qualified volunteers are the heart and soul of Hospice Visions. Our Hospice organization was founded by volunteers and we are committed to honoring their generosity and dedication as they assist those and their families experiencing a life limiting illness.

Volunteers are a vital component of The Visions Team. They offer love, comfort and compassion to patients and their families while supporting the mission and Vision of Hospice. Volunteers bless patients and their families in Twin Falls, Gooding, Lincoln and Jerome Counties during and after this difficult time of life.

We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities: Interacting directly with patients and their families; helping with administrative, clerical and support assignments; participating in fundraising events; creating, implementing, and participating in special events such as, making a wish come true for a patient and their family; or encouraging and recognizing our Veterans. Whether you have leisure time as a retiree, a flexible work / life schedule or a limited amount of time to give, we welcome the gifts of your time and talents.
