Since the founding of Zen Caregiving Project in 1988, formerly known as Zen Hospice Project, our volunteer program has been the heart of the organization offering volunteer opportunities in palliative, hospice, and chronic care settings. We offer a variety of ways volunteers can become involved at Zen Caregiving Project, and we welcome you to consider how you can serve. 

Our volunteer program emphasizes a mindful, human-centered approach in which the spiritual and emotional needs of those we care for are primary.

Volunteers in the Tenderloin

Cadillac Hotel

Zen Caregiving Project (ZCP) extended our volunteer program to populations in need beyond Laguna Honda Hospital.

This new program at the Cadillac Hotel is a unique and challenging opportunity to offer our model of compassionate care to a traditionally underserved population.

Other Volunteer Opportunities

At Zen Caregiving Project, we are committed to enhancing the experience of caregiving by teaching mindfulness and compassion. We always welcome the opportunity to find volunteers who strongly believe in our mission and want to become part of our family.
