Volunteers-The Heart of Hospice

Hospice Volunteers are highly respected and valued members of the Peterson Hospice Team who generously give of themselves and their time. Each individual brings unique gifts to those they serve.  Peterson Hospice and Pathways Volunteers who provide direct patient care have experiences that are full of joy, meaning, hope, and sharing.  Others experience the satisfaction of assisting with office tasks, educational, or other practical, non-medical services.  Peterson Hospice Thrift Store has volunteer opportunities which include sorting, merchandising and selling.  Volunteers are selected, supervised, and well supported by the volunteer manager.  Every volunteer must complete mandatory training.  If you have any questions, please call Jennifer Latiolais at (830) 258-7401or e-mail her at This email address is being protected from spambots.
