Volunteer Opportunities at the Health Center

Volunteers play an essential role in supporting the mission of the Community Health Center of Cape Cod.

We count on our volunteer doctors, nurses and behavioral health counselors to provide much needed specialty treatment and to care for our patients during extended hours, allowing us to treat as many people as possible.

Lay volunteers support efforts in many areas throughout the Health Center, such as assisting in patient intake at the front desk, providing administrative support and assisting in fundraising and special events.

Volunteers are welcome and greatly appreciated at our Falmouth, Mashpee and Bourne offices. We ask that you commit to one shift a month and complete an application and brief training session. For more information, please call 508-477-7090.

Volunteer Opportunities

There are so many ways to become a volunteer at the Community Health Center of Cape Cod.

Patient Greeter
Our Volunteer Greeters welcome patients at our Mashpee location, directing them to the appropriate person or department. We offer a very flexible schedule, depending on availability.

Administrative Support
Another pair of hands is always welcome at our busy front desk and in our administrative and development offices. You can help us with photocopying, answering phones, greeting patients, filing and compiling information.

Medical Records
With the conversion to an electronic medical records system, there is a special need for data entry assistance to keep the electronic records up to date.

Fundraising Events
Fundraising appeals and special events help us make the Health Center’s services available to so many people. You can assist us with special events, organizing mailings and entering information into our growing donor database all help to support this vital function.

20th Anniversary Committee
The Health Center will be celebrating 20 years of providing affordable health services in 2017-2018.  There will be a number of events planned to help celebrate, and we welcome you to join our committee to help organize these events!

CHC Young Professionals Committee
Members will meet and network with other young professionals while coordinating networking events and fundraisers.

Insurance Enrollment
Volunteers can assist patients and the Insurance Enrollment Manager with signing up for health insurance.

If you are interested in any of these roles — or have another skill that you think could benefit our patients and community — please fill out this Volunteer Application form or e-mail Chris Ellis at cellis@chcofcapecod.org.
