We love our volunteers!
Christian Health Care Center’s Volunteer Program is temporarily suspended at this time. Because we care for the most vulnerable population, and out of an abundance of caution to prioritize their health and protection, we are taking aggressive precautionary measures to adhere to the guidelines provided by the New Jersey Department of Health, Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This includes restricting existing volunteers and not interviewing or welcoming any new volunteers until further notice.
For more information about CHCC’s emergency preparedness plan and how we’re addressing the current community healthy situation, please visit our COVID-19 News and Updates Page.
Volunteers at Christian Health Care Center (CHCC) make a difference in the lives of patients, residents, clients, consumers, and staff every day. Each year, more than 300 adults and teenagers aged 13-17 collectively provide nearly 15,000 hours of volunteer service to CHCC. Their responsibilities are varied and extensive. Some assist with activities or work in de Snoep Winkle Gift Shop and Tea Room. Others organize fundraisers or serve on the CHCC Board of Trustees.
Our goal is to make your volunteer experience a valuable one, while also benefiting CHCC residents and patients. Each of us is given gifts and talents to use for the common good. Through volunteering, people give of themselves and receive satisfaction and a sense of fulfillment. Volunteering provides an opportunity to help others, meet new people, keep your mind sharp, explore health careers, and fulfill educational, school, and church community-service requirements.
Some Current Needs:
