About this Opportunity

Though you may be sheltering in place, we continue to welcome your volunteer inquiries during this challenging time. Samaritan is looking for people with big hearts and generous spirits to join our volunteer teamand we are holding virtual orientation and training sessions to help prepare you for the time when we can all be togetheragain.

They need you - yes YOU!

Caring people make 10-15 Bereavement calls on a monthly basis from your own home or you can make weekly Condolence calls from Samaritan's Marlton office to check in with those who have recently lost a loved one on Samaritan's services and reassure them that Samaritan is still there if they need us.

Samaritan is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian agency caring for people suffering from serious, progressive illness and grief.

No computer skills required. No experience necessary!

Please note: All who have experienced the loss of a significant family member or friend must wait one year from date of loss to begin the volunteer process.
