Effective January 4, 2022, our Volunteer Program is suspended due to the
current surge of COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County. We actively monitor
COVID-19 infection rates and will re-open our Volunteer Program as conditions allow.

service areas and departments where duties range from patient interaction
to administrative tasks, depending on the volunteer's strengths and

patients and their families, and our volunteers play an important role
in this endeavor.
