JOIN OUR CAUSE


HANDS of St. Lucie County is able to offer so many healthcare services because of the community practitioners who support its mission. But, because the demand for health and dental care services continues to grow, more help is always needed. If you are an active or retired physician, dentist, specialist, hygienist, nurse, nurse practitioner or medical assistant, you may be interested in joining our family. Because HANDS is a free-standing, not-for-profit organization that provides care to the underserved population, volunteers are immune from medical malpractice when they sign up under the state’s Volunteer Health Care Provider Program. 

But you don’t have to be a medical practitioner to be a valuable volunteer. No matter what your skill set might be, HANDS can use your help. HANDS lay volunteers perform clerical work, data entry, greet patients, help with fund-raising and event planning, or provide other services. All volunteers have an enormous impact on the lives of those served by HANDS of St. Lucie County. HANDS is grateful for its entire family of volunteers who bring a “Culture of Caring” to those in need in St. Lucie County. HANDS volunteers make a difference everyday!

All volunteers will complete an application and a background check. Medical volunteers will apply for the Sovereign Immunity contract. Lay Volunteers will be expected to attend a one-day orientation.
