You can make a difference

Each year, over 800 people volunteer their valuable time and skills to Henry Ford Allegiance Health. Partnering with staff, our diverse group of volunteers contribute in countless ways to ensure our patients have an excellent experience while they are here.

Volunteers offer friendly smiles of greeting to everyone who passes through our doors. They give words of comfort, guide those who need directions, generously share their knowledge, and much more.

Henry Ford Allegiance Health volunteers are men and women, young people and seniors, parents and great-grandparents, employed and retired. Applications are available to anyone who wants to make a meaningful contribution to others in our community.

Get ready to begin

Because the safety and care of our patients is our top priority, all volunteers must successfully complete our application process, including a criminal background check and personal interview. Our volunteers must have a professional, clean appearance and a friendly, welcoming demeanor.

All Henry Ford Allegiance Health volunteers will also receive an orientation and tour before beginning their duties. Our experienced volunteer support staff will help you determine what type of work will best fit your skills, personality, availability and interests.

Choose an opportunity

Our thriving health system offers a constantly changing environment that provides countless opportunities for you to use your skills, or learn new ones. Henry Ford Allegiance volunteers participate in more than 50 areas of service and are an important fundraising source for special equipment and projects. Learn more about our volunteer opportunities.

Enjoy the rewards

Volunteering at Henry Ford Allegiance Health means making a commitment to excellence. Our volunteers work a minimum of one four-hour shift per week for no less than a six-month period. They are rewarded handsomely for their dedication with smiles, hugs and words of gratitude from those whose lives they’ve touched. We know that the priceless human connection is often reward enough for our volunteers. However, we like to say thanks in the following ways:

  • Discounted membership at our on-site Wellness Center
  • Annual holiday celebration
  • Volunteer Week events and recognition
  • Spring luncheon and annual meeting
  • Fall volunteer forums with President and CEO
