End of Life Washington is looking for client support volunteers on Whidbey Island.

The nonprofit organization’s mission is to support adult terminally ill Washington residents who are considering the option of using the Washington State Death With Dignity Act, according to a press release.

Volunteers assist people to access the DWDA by ushering them through the steps to use this option.

End of Life Washington is seeking good listeners with effective communication skills.

Volunteers need to have transportation and a computer along with daytime accessibility. Training and mentoring are provided.

• Those interested in volunteering or who want more information may contact Gretchen DeRoche greatchen@deroche.com or Dave Bieniek at dave.bieniek@gmail.com
