The rewards of volunteering are many, but none is as great as the knowledge that you can and do make a positive difference. Whenever you share your time, skills or talents, you are enhancing, directly or indirectly, the lives of the seniors we serve at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center. Volunteers are an integral part of our commitment to caring for the physical and emotional well-being of each and every senior. Volunteers founded HRC, and it is this tradition of giving that, more than a century later, helps keep it strong.
As a volunteer, your contribution brings a dimension and light to the spiritual and cultural foundation that is the heart of HRC.
