Through the input received from an internal Diversity Census, a Spiritual Team was created to provide support to our Members, as well as, participate in community events as an extension of the Service. We are pleased to provide our Members with access to multi-dimensional, volunteer Spiritual Team made up of a group of religious, pastoral, and spiritual leaders.

  • Counsel members in response to stress or family crisis
  • Accompany a Police Officer to assist with notification of sudden death by suicide, natural causes or serious injury of Members if requested.
  • Visit with sick or injured Members at their house or in the hospital
