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 service experience, education, and reflective understanding. Participants commit to weekly service with hospice patients, ongoing learning from experts in fields related to end of life care, 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. Campus Ministry partners with Endless Journey Hospice.
