Webinar: Chaplaincy Volunteers:  How to Develop and Maintain an Effective Program

Expanding the reach of chaplaincy without pulling on the purse strings is on every director’s mind. Engaging volunteers can be the answer; however for this approach to work, effective programs need to be developed which meet the needs of the organizational setting and the patients served.
