Daily Planet Health Services is not accepting new volunteer applications while we evaluate our current individual volunteer program. Currently there is no set date for resuming the individual volunteer program. Please check this page in the future for updates.

You can always hold a needs drive/collection if you want to get involved. To view current needs list, click here. For more information, please call 804-783-2505, ext. 285 to learn about specific items needed at the time of your scheduled drive.

Please note that DPHS is not able to provide shadowing opportunities with any of our providers or services.


Our Breaking Bread program involves groups of 4 to 12 people to provide meals for the residents living at our Medical Respite and Safe Haven programs. Groups (congregations, book clubs, businesses, schools, and families) purchase food, prepare meals and then bring it to the facility to serve to the residents staying in one of these programs.

For more information or to get on the serving calendar, please look at available days on our calendars. Once you have an idea of when you might like to serve, please email Katy Latimer or call (804) 783-2505 ext. 285.
