Volunteer Opportunities

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

-Winston Churchill

If you are looking for ways to create more meaning in your life and give back to your community, you’ve come to the right place. Volunteers at Centura-Littleton Adventist Hospital are a dynamic, eclectic group of committed and generous-hearted people who make a significant difference in the lives of the patients, visitors, and caregivers they touch.

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the hospital, and we work to match each volunteer with the service area of their interest as part of our Centura Health mission to build whole person care and flourishing communities. Please consider the volunteer opportunities and responsibilities below prior to completing the Volunteer Interest Form.

Please Note: Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Volunteer Services have been functioning on a limited basis to keep our volunteers and community safe. Currently, the wait to become an LAH volunteer can be lengthy as we follow federal, state and county safety guidelines. Thank you for your patience while we continue to navigate this pandemic.
