This summer Christian Health Care Center (CHCC) welcomed 45 junior volunteers on campus. Teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17 were invited to the Center to interact with patients and residents, help with activities, provide aid in transport, or provide assistance at the onsite Child Day Care Center. During their time at CHCC, junior volunteers are able to fulfill church and school community-service requirements, all while gaining a memorable and rewarding experience. Oftentimes, volunteers extend their time and opt to volunteer throughout the year as a result of their positive experience at CHCC.
“Our volunteers make a significant impact on our CHCC community,” said Dot Faasse, Coordinator of Volunteers. “Their participation gives patients, clients, and consumers an opportunity to interact with young people. Their enthusiasm and willingness to help with anything is outstanding. Our junior volunteers are very responsible, friendly, and caring, and they are making a difference wherever they are.”There are several ways to become a volunteer or a junior volunteer at CHCC, all of which are listed on the website at ChristianHealthCare.org under the community tab. For more information, call the Volunteer Office at (201) 848-5797.
CHCC provides a broad continuum of high-quality, compassionate care, offering superior senior-life, short-term rehab, and mental-health services. As a non-profit organization, we deliver care to our community based upon the Christian principles on which we were founded more than a century ago.
