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
