Thank you for your interest in volunteering to support the SECU Crystal Coast Hospice House. Volunteers are VITAL to all aspects of the SECU Crystal Coast Hospice House. Without volunteers, we would not be able to provide the facility or the care that offers comfort and dignity to our families, neighbors and friends during such a precious time. Volunteers are the HEART of our efforts.
There are two organizations that you can work with, Crystal Coast Hospice House (CCHH) and Home Health and Hospice Care (3HC). You may volunteer with either one or both. Most of our volunteers do a little of both.
If you are interested in volunteering, you may complete the contact us form or complete the information linked below and mail to either address listed or drop them by the facility.
CCHH is the nonprofit organization that owns the facility, and raises funds for public awareness, education about hospice, programs to support patients and families plus continued investments in the facility, grounds and furniture & equipment. CCHH holds Public Awareness, Educational, Marketing and Fundraising Events - as well as keeps the community informed through mailings, presentations, web-based communications, etc. We also decorate for Christmas and other holidays, provide patient comfort items, review special requests from our operator 3HC, and support other joint programs with 3HC and community civic groups to enhance our area's access to and experience with inpatient hospice care at the SECU CCHH . CCHH volunteers are not involved in direct patient care. If you are interested in helping CCHH, please complete our volunteer profile form - just fill it out and either scan & email, mail or drop it by the facility to . If you are mailing your form, please address it to: Volunteers, Crystal Coast Hospice House, PO Box 640, Newport, NC 28570.
3HC is the nonprofit organization that operates the Hospice Home and handles all staffing, including volunteers, that are involved in patient care. Gina Bruce serves as the SECU Crystal Coast Hospice House patient care volunteer coordinator. Volunteers serve a tremendous role in the operations of the hospice home, and volunteer hours must make up 5% of total staffing hours for certain certifications. Special training and a commitment of 2 hours per week are important components of volunteering to fill direct or indirect patient care needs that qualify for the 5% needed. Please join this important volunteer force by completing the 3HC Volunteer Application and the 3HC Secure Check authorization and return them to by email, mail or drop them by the facility to Dawn. Once both forms are received and reviewed, Dawn will schedule a training session and TB & drug screenings for you so you can work with patients and operations. If you have any questions about this level of volunteering, please contact Dawn by or phone 252-550-0795. If you are mailing your forms, please address them to Volunteers, SECU Crystal Coast Hospice House, 100 Big Rock Weigh, Newport, NC 28570.
