Hospice of the Western Reserve Volunteer Education Series
9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
Hospice of the Western Reserve is seeking volunteers to assist in private residences, nursing homes, assisted living communities, our three Hospice House locations, and hospital settings. As a vital part of Hospice of the Western Reserve’s team, volunteers come from all walks of life and have a variety of skills, talents and abilities. Opportunities to serve are diverse: visit patients and families to provide companionship, socialization, and comfort; help with legacy work, transportation, light housework, and meal preparation; run errands; make phone calls; help with clerical work; attend health fairs; make presentations. Volunteers with specialized professional qualifications and training are also needed: attorneys, licensed hair dressers, massotherapists, pet therapy dogs and their handlers.
The next series of volunteer classes will be held at Hospice of the Western Reserve, 300 East 185th Street, Cleveland, 44119, on Saturdays, February 2 and 9, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Non-clinical volunteers attend only the first four hours on February 2, while most other volunteers attend all classes. Pre-registration is required. For more information, or to register, call the volunteer team at 216.255.9090. It is required to wait 12 months after experiencing a significant loss before volunteering directly with patients.

HCC Workshop: Recognizing Privilege and Bias in Your Community
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Join Heights Community Congress and the wider community for this 4-hour workshop during which we will wrestle with these questions and much more.

The recent Cleveland Heights branding survey confirmed what Heights Residents have long known to be true, “diversity stands out as the most valued characteristic” of this community.

But what does diversity really mean and how do we embrace this vital characteristic every day?

During our time together we will define and differentiate between diversity and inclusion, and discuss privilege and its impact in the community. This workshop, facilitated by our partners at Compass Consulting, will involve personal reflection and corporate sharing so that we can identify our social responsibility as it relates to the impacts of privilege in our fair city.

Soup, salad and drinks will be provided for lunch and snacks will be available.

This workshop will be limited to 50 participants so we can maximize our personal connections! Please register soon. To register you can visit www.heightscongress.org or you can call the HCC office at 216.321.6775.
