Volunteer at the HeartWay

The HeartWay could not achieve its mission of “serving people nearing their end of life transitions, as well as their loved ones and caregivers,” without volunteers.

We provide our integrative care and services free to those at the end-of-life and their loved ones. This is only possible through the support of our amazing volunteers who extend the reach of our committed staff to touch individuals and families around the world.

Do you have a desire to build relationships?
Do you believe that everyone deserves to be loved?
Do you want to be part of something bigger than yourself?

Whether you are looking for one-time volunteering or a weekly volunteer position, we have an opportunity for you.

Volunteers are the heartbeat of The HeartWay

Our volunteers offer vital support and are infused with understanding, empathy, unconditional love, generosity, and compassion. Their altruistic actions serve to bond our community and we very much appreciate their service to humanity.
“The HeartWay has been a dream and an evident answer to prayer. It is the perfect place to grow and serve. I am honored to learn from, mentor under, and volunteer for Dr. Deerheart. It is my hope to be a part of this team until I myself need end of life care.”
Janae Luchesi
"The heart-centered approach to client care is why I volunteer, attend the Death Cafe, and the ELP training program. I am honored to learn from Dr. Deerheart about how to support the dying and their families during life’s most tender moments."
Judy Iannaccone
"I chose to volunteer for The HeartWay after speaking with Dr. Deerheart and feeling energized by her and her team's commitment to care for individuals with love and dignity. I am honored to have been able to help out on this mission."
Armando Sandoval
"I am touched and inspired by Andrea and the HeartWay. Embracing others and their families in a loving and compassionate way as they transition is certainly a spiritual gift."
Brad McMahon
"For me, volunteering for The HeartWay allows me to help and advocate for a cause greater than myself. It has been my privilege these last months to better understand how a nonprofit operates and the care given to those at the end of life."
