Volunteers Making a Difference

For many years, our volunteers have been an important part of Bethany Lutheran Home. From Bethany’s beginning in the 1960s to today, volunteers continue to meet the needs of the residents and staff. Residents enjoy the faces, activities, hobbies, storytelling, and the chance to reminisce while volunteers comment about the rewarding experience they gain by helping the elderly.

We invite you to become a part of Bethany Lutheran Health Services. Whether you are able to volunteer once or often, your involvement will help make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Amanda or Michael at their phone numbers listed above. Or, you can send them an email at either or
