Due to the recent surge of Covid-19 in South Florida, all of our volunteer programs are on hold. We will still accept Adult and RN Applications. We will continue to monitor this situation, and send updates on when we will move forward with the onboarding process. We greatly appreciate your patience, and hope to see you soon.
