Volunteer at Holy Family Hospital

Making Life Better

Our volunteers are the first people you see when you enter Spokane's Providence Holy Family Hospital, ready to greet you with a smile! and help you find your way.For a few hours a week, you can be part of a world-class team at Providence Holy Family Hospital through its volunteer program.

Providence is a place where healing occurs, not only by medical and surgical intervention, but by the touch of a hand, a shared smile, a listening ear, a prayer or a knowing wink. It’s a place where you can make a difference through your acts of kindness, making life better for you and for those you help! See below for a wide range of volunteer activities to choose from.

In national surveys, people who volunteer report that it keeps them healthy, lowers stress levels and gives purpose to life. Think about other rewards of volunteering:

  • Develop new skills. Broaden your talents.
  • Build new friendships.

  • Earn service hours for school program requirements.
