Dedicated volunteers give thousands of hours of service to ECHN. Volunteers must have the desire to assist patients, their families and our community. Excellent customer service skills, compassion, maturity, empathy, objectivity, tact and the ability to maintain confidentiality are required.

Please note that current volunteering opportunities are very limited.  For current opportunities, contact the ECHN Volunteer Manager at 860-647-6841.


All volunteers must complete an application and require medical clearance, a background and reference check and must attend an orientation before work can begin. Volunteers working at Woodlake at Tolland must also be fingerprinted.
