Volunteers from across our community play a vital role in the work of the Foundation of FirstHealth. They are the heart and soul of the Clara McLean House and the environment of compassionate hospitality and support it provides to patients and their families. Volunteers provide caring hands to assist the work of FirstHealth Hospice & Palliative Care. And when, the Foundation hosts fundraising events and activities, you’ll find our tireless volunteers pitching in to help. Learn More
