TRU Community Care provides a continuum of care for those with advanced illness including hospice, home health, and grief support for patients and families in the Boulder and Denver Metro areas. Volunteers are an essential part of the TRU Community Care team. Every year more than 300 volunteers assist in giving our patients and families the best emotional, spiritual, and practical support available; lend valuable administrative assistance to the organization; and play a key role at the TRU Hospice Thrift Shop.
