We are excited to come together as JourneyCare and delighted to have this outstanding group of volunteers working with us. We now have the ability to offer palliative, supportive and end-of-life services for patients and their families across 10 counties throughout Chicago and northern Illinois. The number of patients we serve each day has more than doubled, so your role as a volunteer is more vital than ever!
Our volunteer staff has also grown and there are now 11 people in our department to work with our volunteers. Rest assured, you will continue to work with the Volunteer Coordinators and staff you already know and who understand you and the gifts and talents you bring to our organization. And even though each of the staff members has a “home base,” they all travel between offices as needed. You will get a chance to meet all of them over time. To familiarize you with all the new names and faces, we will feature a few of our staff members in the newsletter each month so you can get to know everyone a little better. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact me at any time. Thank you for all you do and I look forward to working with you.
