 Faces of Hospice

The mission of the Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County is to provide free around-the- clock registered nursing availability to terminally ill patients, while supporting them and their families emotionally, physically and spiritually with a team of trained caregivers and volunteers.

Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County (VHOCC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization, whose service area stretches from Diamond Point to Joyce. Our organization provides support and care for terminally ill persons, enabling them to live out their final days as fully and comfortably as possible. Since its inception in 1978, all services have been provided free of charge to patients and their families; VHOCC does not bill any government agency for its services.

New activities are planned and now you can find us on Facebook.

Date 1/1/2015: Polar Bear Dip was a fun event.  See a short video on our Facebook page and give us a LIKE while you are thre.

PORT ANGELES — The Annual Port Angeles Polar Bear Dip will be dipping for the 27th time on New Year's Day at Hollywood Beach at 10 am. As an aside to the 2015 event, a special challenge has been added to benefit Voluntary Hospice of Clallam County.

The Polar Bear Challenge works like this:

Anyone can challenge anyone else to take the dip and put a dollar amount of
their choice on the challenge. If the person challenged takes the plunge, the
challenger donates that much to VHOCC. If the challenged person chooses not to
participate, the challenger is off the hook.

It is a really fun way to financially support a very worthy cause and help out
an organization that does tremendous good in the community.

Challenges are already being collected and the people challenged will soon be
notified. If you would like to participate, you can stop by the VHOCC office at 540 E.
8th Street in Port Angeles and pick up a brochure, or call Dan at 457-8133.

All proceeds go to VHOCC. Look for their booth, where coffee and pastries will be available to warm spectators and participants.
