While the COVID-19 outbreak is evolving our communities needs, as well as our outreach and the services we deliver, volunteerism is as important than ever. If you are able to contribute to the response, please reach out.

Read what our Community Volunteers have to say about their work:
I liked volunteering with the medical assistance program. It was amazing to see how many steps there were for patients to get free medications.
It’s such rewarding work because you get to tell people they have a doctor’s appointment. They’re thrilled because usually it’s a journey for them to get there.
It’s a very worthwhile organization. A big part of volunteering is also meeting people. Everyone who works here is fantastic and their work is inspiring.
Volunteer as a Healthcare Provider
Volunteering with Project Access allows you to donate care to the uninsured in a way that is organized, equitable and safe. We will quantify and coordinate the donated care you may already be providing, enabling you to focus on treating patients, regardless of their coverage status or income. We take care of all the details so you can focus on healing.
When you serve as a Volunteer Healthcare Provider for Project Access NOW, the patients we connect you with will have access to medications, hospitalizations, lab testing, diagnostic imaging, and other ancillary services. The Project Access system allows you to order tests, schedule hospitalizations, and care for your uninsured and low-income patients in a manner very similar to that of your traditional patients, without extraordinary measures.
Project Access NOW allows me to do what I trained to do: Take care of patients. Together, we’re helping fellow Oregonians in a caring and efficient manner. Many patients need help today, and Project Access NOW is providing it.
