The organization known for providing end-of-life care and support to hospice patients and their families is expanding its services. Now known as Hosparus Health, it includes a palliative care program for seriously ill patients and a life care program for those coping with chronic illness. “We are reaching out in our community to add more volunteers to our base so we can respond to additional patient requests,” says volunteer services manager Kathy Ising. From assisting in the corporate offices to helping patients and families with chores or providing companionship, there are many different ways to get involved.

Dedicated to supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Cedar Lake is driven by a vision of “a community where those with and without disabilities learn to share and enrich each other’s lives through meaningful interactions that cultivate mutual respect and unconditional love.” Individuals as well as volunteer and corporate groups can get involved on many different levels from working one-on-one with people Cedar Lake supports to leading a group class or taking on a project, says director of marketing Tara Oliver.
