Volunteer for Health 

Volunteers for Health can transform both the volunteers who give time and those who receive it. Many people’s lives have been touched by the special work of someone volunteering his or her time. Knowing that you are helping others in a way that cannot be measured in terms of monetary reward, but can be measured in terms of commitment, compassion and dedication to your community is a vital contribution.

FDOH-Walton is continually recruiting volunteers who can share their time, talent, and the desire to be a part of a quality community organization. Volunteer Opportunities are available in a variety of programs and services, ranging from office support to specialty services, at multiple locations throughout the county. Help us create a culture of care and good health in Walton County by volunteering. Please join us in making a difference in the quality of life of others.

Specialty Care Medically Licensed Volunteers 

FDOH-Walton’s Volunteer Health Services Program is a local version of the Florida Department of Health's statewide Volunteer Health Services Program. Through the Volunteer Health Services Program, committed volunteers promote access to quality health care for medically underserved and uninsured residents.

These volunteers include physicians, ARNP's and others who specialize in a focused area of medicine and can provide those services to people we serve in our primary care network. Medically licensed volunteers receive sovereign immunity and continuing medical education credits.

We offer volunteers a friendly and supportive environment. Hours are flexible. There are opportunities for year-round and seasonal residents. The staff and clients appreciate the time and effort our volunteers give. There is nothing more satisfying than to know that you helped make someone else’s life a little better.

The VHSP is authorized through Chapters 110 and 766 of the Florida Statutes. Volunteers are supervised by FDOH-Walton staff.

If you are a licensed health care professional and would like to volunteer to administer the COVID-19 vaccine in your community, please visit:
