Make a difference in someone's life!

We are always looking to bring additional volunteers into our program. To volunteer with us takes a caring spirit and a willingness to learn the "ins and outs" of being a long-term care ombudsman. We believe that every Kansas long-term care resident deserves to have access to the services of a certified volunteer ombudsman.

If you have a passion for helping the elderly and others who live in long-term care facilities, then we have a volunteer position waiting for you.  Become an ombudsman volunteer and help improve the quality of life for residents in a facility near you!

What to expect

We provide new volunteers with 30 hours of classroom and on-site training. All prospective volunteers go through a screening process, including a background check. Once a volunteer has successfully completed training, the volunteer and the regional staff match the volunteer to a facility. Following placement, regional staff provide ongoing support and training for the volunteer. Our goal is to provide the resources needed for each certified volunteer ombudsman to be a successful advocate for the residents in their facility.
