We want to thank all the people who have contacted us wanting to volunteer with SOURCES during these uncertain times. As we identify opportunities where you can support our community, we will post them below.

Each Sources’ location has adapted a specialized COVID-19 prevention plan to ensure the safety of volunteers, staff and clients. This includes social distancing, masks when necessary, plexiglass barriers and enhanced cleaning protocols.  As a result, we are unable to engage as many volunteers as we would like. Please do check back often or contact us for more information about future volunteer opportunities with SOURCES at volunteerservices@sourcesbc.ca.

We also recommend visiting BC211 and United Way who have launched portals to connect volunteers with individuals and organizations in need. Please visit their websites to find current opportunities to help.

We are so grateful to serve such a thoughtful community. Thank you for your support.

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. We communicate with our volunteers to keep everyone informed about our activities and how their contributions truly make an impression on a personal level.

A supportive, positive group that helps me acquire clothes, food and friendships. Offering places to go to get information and assistance. How wonderful that these women give their time and energy to caring for those in trauma, the disabled and those with no hope. Thank you.Woman’s Place client

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

I enjoy the people I work with. It’s a younger crowd. Keeps me learning new things. I feel like I am doing something with my life even though I am retired. I am also making an impact on me. I am becoming more aware of the suffering people are experiencing. I am being more empathetic and grateful than ever in my life.Sources Volunteer
