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.

We treasure our volunteers, for their time, their talents and their unflagging commitment to our mission. We could not do what we do without them.

-CEO/President, Stacy Brinkley
