Join the men and women (our Doula Volunteers) who visit individuals facing the end of life alone without friends or family.

The Doula Program to Accompany and Comfort's mission is to minimize the isolation and loneliness experienced by individuals with advanced illness. Our Doula Volunteers get to know these individuals beyond their illness, visiting them weekly as illness progresses until the person dies. 

We are the only nonprofit organization of its kind specializing in training, carefully matching and supervising Doula Volunteers who visit individuals each week for an hour (at their home, nursing home or hospital).

Our Volunteers find their lives as enriched as the lives of those they visit. 

Time/Assignment Commitment: Due to Covid-19 all visits will be conducted over the phone once a week. You set your own schedule. We ask for at least one year commitment after you are assigned to visit.

Training Schedule: Training begins Fall of 2020 (Evenings: 2 hours weekly over 8 weeks)

Location: Due to Covid- 19, training will be conducted over Zoom.

How to Apply: Contact hmaiberger@doulaprogram.org or 212-706-0398 ext. 2


*Please note that we currently do not accept individuals who are healthcare or social service professionals.
