The Gift of Time
Are you looking for an opportunity to be part of a team with a real sense of purpose, to use your skills and experiences or to gain new ones, and to know that your work is making a difference? Covenant Care offers many volunteer opportunities for high school students (minimum age 14) and adults of all ages that will fit into any schedule.
Many of our volunteers wish to provide companionship and support directly to our patients and families. But if this is not for you, there are other ways to get involved that still touch the lives of those who need help. You may decide to assist with fundraising events, office work, or community outreach. Covenant Care volunteers can attend free workshops that prepare them to volunteer in many different ways. Fun workshops that offer training are offered throughout the year in branch offices and other community locations, at times that are designed to fit volunteers’ schedules and are also available online for your convenience.
Watch a great volunteer experience here:
Care for Covenant Care patients and their family members by making visits or telephone calls, providing spiritual support, giving practical help or a short break for the caregiver.
What do Covenant Care volunteers do?
Volunteers are important members of our team and can assist in many different ways. You can visit patients and provide companionship or provide a much-needed break for a family member who is caring for their loved one. You can assist administratively in our offices and be an ambassador at our community events. Some assist in many different ways with our bereavement and fundraising departments. (For those located in Pensacola and Mobile, there are additional opportunities to volunteer at our inpatient hospice units)
How can I become a volunteer?
Please call Covenant Care at 855-CARE-365 and ask to speak to a Volunteer Manager.
What is the application process/training process?
The Volunteer Manager will provide you with an application packet to fill out. Each volunteer undergoes a background check. If you are going to serve patients/families, then you will need a Tuberculosis screening. Administrative volunteers go through a 2-hour orientation, and patient/family volunteers will go through an 8-hour training.
What is the minimum age for volunteers?
We accept volunteers ages 14 and up.
Why should I become a volunteer?
You will be giving so much back to the patients and families who are in a very vulnerable situation. You will be volunteering with a company that has served our local communities since 1983 and is well respected. We will use your talents and gifts. You WILL make a difference! You ARE needed!

You will receive regular communication/newsletters from Covenant Care so that you are aware of what is happening with our volunteer department and our company.
