OSSMC is extraordinarily proud of our volunteer Ombudsmen whose work with our staff makes it possible for us to provide an outstanding level of service to our community.

Field Ombudsman Volunteers

Our volunteers are trained to be professionals in the field: they know the rules and are committed to ensuring that residents of long-term care facilities receive the quality care they need and the respect they deserve. They are caring, compassionate, courageous advocates for those who cannot (or dare not) speak for themselves.

Friendly Visitor Volunteers

Volunteer to make a difference in the life of an older resident living in a licensed San Mateo County long term care facility.


Other Volunteer Opportunities

In addition to our volunteer ombudsman opportunities, Ombudsman Services of San Mateo County (OSSMC) has other volunteer opportunities for individuals and organizations through our Friendly Visitor program.

Internship Opportunities

Please contact us if you are currently a student studying for a Social Work, Gerontology, Nursing, (add other) or any related degree, and are interested in interning with us.
