Volunteering for Wesway


Help a family take a much-needed break.
Respite care is a crucial part of the overall support many people need when caring for a family member at home. We will strive to make the best possible match for you. We want you to have a meaningful and personally satisfying volunteer experience.


Host Families

Have you thought about volunteering as a family? Want to make a difference and give your time in a way that has meaning and fulfillment? Families come in all shapes and sizes; Wesway is looking for Host Family Volunteers to invite someone into your home for a short stay who has a disability. Have fun and invite someone to enjoy the same activities you enjoy with your family! For more information, please call Ashley Fratpietro at 625-6691 or email

Community Friends

Share your favourite activities with a participant who has similar interests. Enjoy social or recreational activities for a few hours every week or two. It’s a great opportunity to make friends and explore our community.

"I initially signed up as a volunteer to help out but quickly gained a new friend. We both have a ton of fun playing sports, hitting the gym, watching movies, trying new things and being a part of the community."
