About Us

Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County is a non-profit, Maine State Licensed volunteer support organization, founded in 1980. We provide non-medical assistance to patients and families who are facing the end-of-life, support to those who grieve the loss of a loved one, and provide education and advocacy for the community on death and bereavement issues.

Our Mission

Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County seeks to enhance the lives of those experiencing life-limiting illness and grief and loss by providing quality, cost-free compassionate support and comfort.

Our guiding values are: dedication to the preservation of individual choice, dignity and quality of life; support for volunteers and the hospice team; hospice education, advocacy and community engagement.
