We implemented a new software database system to recruit, track, and coordinate our volunteers that provide Direct Care Services to hospice and bereavement families. We estimated a cost savings of approximately $230,000 for our last fiscal year from volunteer hours devoted to the needs of our hospice patients and families. We opened up the opportunity for volunteers to attend the same educational work in services, as paid clinical staff. It was well received by volunteers. At one education session, there were more volunteers present than paid staff.
