Volunteer

WISH would not be able to operate without the dedication and commitment of our 100+ volunteers. At any given time time, approximately 95 women volunteer at the WISH Drop-In Centre each month on a weekly or on-call basis, in addition to practicum students, interns, and specialty volunteers in other WISH programs, including those collecting items on our WISH List.

There are a variety of volunteer opportunities at WISH to suit a range of time commitments and personalities. Our amazing Volunteer team performs a variety of tasks including but not limited to serving and preparing a hot, nutritious meal; sorting and dispensing clothing, makeup and toiletries donations; helping women sign up for showers and access shelters, some light janitorial duties, and of course, the opportunity to connect one on one with individual participants, all while creating a welcoming, caring environment for the women who access the Drop-In space.

We are currently not accepting new volunteer applications – please check this page for updates.  If you have any questions, you are welcome to call the Volunteer & Community Resources Manager at 604-669-9474, or email by clicking this link.

We look forward to hearing from you!
