Community Hospice of Texas

Community Hospice of Texas, a non-profit, is currently seeking compassionate individuals to support patients and their families who are facing end-of-life challenges. Volunteers are needed who can sit with patients, 3 to 4 hours, one day per week to give family caregivers a much needed break and an opportunity to run errands or make phone calls to check on families.

Hospice volunteers are compassionate adults who are trained to listen to patients and family members. A free, comprehensive, training session will begin July 12. Interested persons should contact Volunteer Coordinator Bertha Orona at borona@chot.org or call 682-444-5332.
