In 1978 Rose Crumb, a registered nurse, and a group of enthusiastic volunteers, set out to provide free hospice care to Clallam County residents. They envisioned an organization that offers end-of-life care, grief counseling, and other essential services at no cost to patients and their families. Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County was born. Since then, VHOCC has grown, ever-grateful for the opportunity to serve our community.
After twenty years of service, in 1998, VHOCC was named a Jefferson Award recipient—a national honor recognizing exceptional public and community service. Today, our dedicated staff and tireless volunteers continue to provide compassionate care to community members throughout Clallam County.
