Clinical Volunteer Opportunities
In addition to in-home care, DHHA also provides mobile Wellness Clinics at low-income housing sites around the metro area.  These clinics assist residents with chronic disease management, medication adherence, and connection to community resources that are instrumental in maintaining their quality of life and independence.

Volunteers help us provide direct care to the patients visiting the monthly clinics.  If possible, we ask that nurses and greeters commit to the same recurring site or sites each month.

  • Registered Nurses: Assess vital signs, provide counseling, health information, and assistance with taking their medications correctly.
  • Greeters: These volunteers do not have to be healthcare professionals.  Your role will be to greet the patients coming into the clinic, pull their chart, and weigh them in before they see the nurses.
  • Patient Health Advocates:  PHA’s support the nurses by working directly with patients to advocate for their health and psychosocial needs.  The volunteer will connect patients to community resources to address these gaps in care.
  • Pharmacists, Registered Dietitians, and other health professionals:  We encourage you to contact us for opportunities to help our Wellness Clinic patients.
