Volunteers are the heart and inspiration of our mission. As a Sangre volunteer, you help support many people and their families in our communities live to the fullest with comfort and healing.
Whether you want to support those we care for and their loved ones, assist in our offices, or lend a hand in another essential role, we know you will find a rewarding experience with our volunteer family. Many opportunities are available for adults, high school teens ages 14-18, and community groups at many times and locations. Join us today.

To become a volunteer, you must be available to participate in initial Sangre volunteer training as well as basic orientation. Additional volunteer trainings are available if needed. Volunteer selection begins with an application and interview in which potential volunteers may express their personal goals, availability, interests, and talents. Of course, our volunteers are carefully screened through a criminal background check, motor vehicle report, and personal references.
