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.

All 2019-2020 Program Participants have been selected. Please consider applying for the 2020-2021 community in February-March 2020.
