Home Volunteer Volunteer Centre

At Sources we believe that volunteerism is fundamental to social wellness and that the spirit of helping is important to both community and personal development. While many of us volunteer our time and skills to others in our day-to-day lives, we often fail to see the true impact of our support. At the same time, many non-profit organizations struggle to recruit and retain adequate volunteers for their programs.

Sources Volunteer Centre is designed to support social wellness for individuals, organizations, and communities through volunteerism. We assist individuals to find volunteer opportunities that match their personal needs and organizations to develop and maintain their volunteer resources. In the process, we aim to promote the spirit of helping and raise awareness about the benefits of volunteerism in our community.

Sources Community Visitors Program


Visits mean more to seniors than volunteers know

When her visitor walks into the room, Rose's face lights up.

"What a treat," she said happily. Rose, 92, lives at Peace Portal Lodge, across from Peace Arch Hospital, and loves her visits with Nancy Hoyano and her mom Phyllis, who is also 92. But this December day, it was just Nancy bearing a plate of freshly baked cookies. She said her mom was running late and she'd go out in a bit to collect her and bring her by to see Rose.

There is a waiting list of seniors who would like to pair up with suitable visitors. Volunteers must be adults, have a criminal record check and be cleared beforehand.

To find out more about how to volunteer, see volweb.ca, call Sources at 604-542-4357 or email volunteerservices@sourcesbc.ca.
