Family Member Volunteers

Family Members (clients) are encouraged to participate in volunteering activities to support the services and team at Our Place.  Volunteering is an opportunity for connection, building confidence and job skills.  Family member volunteers work together with community volunteers and staff to create a sense of belonging and team work.

Volunteer activities include:

  • tidying up the courtyard and neighborhood
  • helping in day to day operations such as food services, hygiene and donation processing
  • maintaining communal flower boxes
  • other operational roles

Volunteering provides experience and skills that assist with future employment and provide a opportunity for all clients.  Family member volunteer contributions are valued and essential to Our Place and our community.
