“If you like the idea of growing through giving and sharing, join me at Hospice of Homer and become a volunteer. I became a Hospice volunteer because I wanted to cultivate more meaningful relationships in my life. I did not realize just how this would happen until I began meeting with my client and we began to develop a relationship based on genuine caring and support.” –John Neville, Hospice of Homer Volunteer
