Voorhees Pediatric Facility Volunteer Program
Volunteers at Voorhees Pediatric Facility fulfill a significant role in completing the circle of care provided to the children, adolescents, young adults and their families. As part of the healthcare team, volunteers complement the care of the professional staff in assuring that the needs of residents, and families are met. Volunteers provide services through a variety of programs spending quality time with the residents on a one on one basis or in a group setting. Whether it is reading a story to a child, doing homework or an art project with a teenager, or rocking a small infant to sleep, volunteers brighten the children’s days. Volunteers also provide needed assistance by performing clerical duties.
Diverse volunteer opportunities are available to choose from:
- Bancroft School
- Clerical Support
- Therapeutic Recreation/ Child Life Department
- The Medical Day Care at Voorhees Pediatric Facility
