Although many hospices reach out to faith communities, much potential remains untapped!  This session will explore the key factors you need to know to engage volunteers effectively through faith communities. We will discuss the current realities faith communities’ face, strategies for getting in the door and successful model programs and tools.  Whether you are new to faith community engagement or looking for new ideas, this session will refresh your vision for engaging with faith communities.


  • Identify key factors that make faith communities natural partners for engaging volunteers and providing end of life outreach
  • Discuss and evaluate successful model programs and resources for engaging faith communities
