Hospice of the Valley (HOV)

Hospice of the Valley (HOV) is a non-profit organization in the Phoenix Area focused on providing Comfort and Dignity through terminal illness and end of life.

After completing the HOV Training Program, students are able to volunteer in one of two ways:

-One is for Ryan House, a center in Downtown Phoenix focused on caring for terminally ill children and providing respite care for families of children with serious illnesses. This is the only center of its kind in the entire US. see more here: https://www.ryanhouse.org/our-home/ 

-The other is at Gardiner Home. This is a care facility in Downtown Phoenix for families struggling to care for adults with dementia. It is a unique place that focuses on nurturing adults with dementia (and their caregivers) in unique ways with music and arts and a peaceful/homey environment! see more here:
