Where does volunteering take place?

Volunteering can take place in the family’s home, in your home or in the community depending on the type of volunteering that’s chosen.


Can I volunteer with my family?

Absolutely! We have our Host Family Volunteer service. Our Host Family volunteers provide periods of respite by welcoming a child or adult with a disability into their home. The host family engages the individual in their home and into their family’s activities for a few hours or for an over night on the weekend. This type of volunteering allows children of the family to have the opportunity to learn from someone who experiences a disability, and they can become ambassadors for the future.
