Hands of Hope

Hands of Hope is a faith-based and service-focused program inviting students to go deeper in their faith lives and explore ministry of presence through experience, education, and reflective understanding. Participants commit to weekly service with hospice patients and regular reflection throughout the academic year. Students do not have to embrace a particular faith perspective to participate in the program, but should be open to faith as a critical component for human dignity.

The applications for 2020-2021 have passed, please check back in February 2021 for the 2021-2022 program applications.
