Volunteer quotes

I gained knowledge about what being an 'underserved population' actually means, I learned about disorders I didn't know existed, and I learned how to be an effective member of a medical team.

Apply to be a volunteer

We want to give meaningful service opportunities to our volunteers and interns. To do this, we use a rigorous selection process that matches our program needs to interested volunteers.

Choose how you want to volunteer

Medically licensed health care providers give Casa the ability to offer quality medical services at a low cost through in-person and telehealth visits.

We provide interpreters so you can communicate with every patient and medical scribes so you can focus on patient care. Our greatest needs are for:

  • Internal medicine physicians, cardiologists, gynecologists, and urologists

  • Mental health professionals

  • Registered nurses for in-clinic and at-home visits​

Non-medically licensed volunteers, including volunteers fill a number of important roles at Casa. We have a need for volunteers with and without proficiency in Spanish or other languages.

Using your time and talent in these roles gives you valuable experience in a health care setting. Volunteers who are not licensed health care providers fill these important roles:

  • For those with proficiency in Spanish or other languages:

    • Medical interpreter

    • GUIA navigator

    • GUIA financial assistance specialist

    • Mental health intake specialist

  • For those without proficiency in Spanish or other languages:

    • Medical scribe

    • Administrative volunteers

    • Communication volunteers

Friends of Casa are community members who want to help us fulfill our mission beyond the clinic. They are ambassadors for Casa who meet after work hours, help with friendraising, community awareness, and our fun events such as Trivia Night and Zocaloco.

As a Friend of Casa, you will meet other Friends after work hours to have fun while you help with friendraising, community awareness, and Casa’s 2 yearly events – Trivia Night and the Zocaloco gala. It’s a chance to make social connections with like-minded professionals who are committed to promoting access to health care for people who are uninsured and underinsured in our community.
