Specialty volunteer programs
We have programs designed for the specific needs of our patients.
No One Dies Alone Program
No One Dies Alone is a program that provides volunteers a chance to offer a reassuring presence at the bedside of a dying patient who would otherwise be alone. No One Dies Alone provides a dignified death to individuals who have no family or close friends to sit with them at the end of life. Through this program, we are able to provide a compassionate presence for all our patients.
NICU Cuddle Program
We believe no baby should go unhugged. Often, babies in our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) need an extra touch or cuddles. Many studies have proven the importance of touch to a baby’s health and healing. Our NICU cuddle volunteers supplement parents’ touch and promote a baby’s healing. While we have many exciting opportunities to volunteer at our hospital, we are not in need of cuddle volunteers at this time. Thank you for your interest.
Our hospital has a long and esteemed history as a Denver institution. With origins in Jewish teachings, traditions and community, our founders built the hospital to "serve the need of every creed." Our volunteer program has played a significant role in this history. Our programs began with our original volunteers, The Gray Ladies who often rolled bandages for patients, we have evolved into the robust program it is today. We encourage you to join us in making a difference!
