Saint John’s Hospice relies on many volunteers in its ministry to homeless persons. We could not fulfill our mission without this generous service.

During the last fiscal year, volunteers contributed a total of more than 40,000 hours to fulfilling our mission. This is equivalent to our having more than 19 extra full time employees on our staff.

These hours include all help that we have received and for which we have not had to pay: individuals, groups, and community service volunteers. For more information, contact Barry Martin, 215-563-7763 x133.
