The Doorways is a place where families and patients can lean on each other for the emotional support needed in a time of crisis. Volunteers play a vital role in this support, while also being an invaluable resource to Doorways Staff. Most importantly, volunteers offer reassurance in a warm and caring manner to people who arrive frightened, wearing and/or sick.
