Volunteer at SOS!

Since 2000, volunteers have helped SOS Clinic provide high-quality medical care to uninsured residents from Dayton to Pendleton. They are the heart and soul of the clinic. In fact, without them there would be no clinic.

Are you a doctor, nurse, pharmacist or other health care professional? SOS Clinic offers a friendly, hassle-free environment in which to practice, collaborate with colleagues and make a difference in your community. SOS Clinic’s many volunteers come for the same reason - to provide high-quality care in a practical manner to appreciative patients. Through Washington State's Volunteer and Retired Providers Program, health care providers who volunteer at SOS Clinic enjoy immunity from medical malpractice except in cases of gross negligence or willful misconduct.

Are you interested in volunteering for non-clinical tasks? SOS Clinic needs you, too! The clinic could not offer excellent health care to patients were it not for the wonderful volunteers who generously give their time and talents. Volunteers serve as administrative support staff, front office assistants, patient registration clerks, interpreters and more.

We are humbled by the number of individuals who want to volunteer. It is our desire that all who wish to serve join our team and be a part of this great service to the community. We greatly appreciate your interest and willingness to serve!
