We love and appreciate our dedicated volunteers at Natividad. Their warm smiles and comforting demeanors enhance the patient experience by providing personalized assistance to patients and visitors. Whether they are welcoming visitors, cuddling newborn babies, or assisting in Physical Therapy, volunteers are a key part of the extraordinary care we provide.
Our volunteers develop a variety of transferable skills while serving at Natividad. Volunteers gain leadership skills and often learn more about themselves through their work and the connections they make working on a team. Our opportunities further develop problem solving skills, adaptability, professionalism, and communicating with people of all backgrounds and ages.

Greet visitors and new patients, dispense general information, direct and accompany visitors to their destinations.
