Current Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Driver Needed!
Do you love to drive, and enjoy helping people maintain relationships?  We have the opportunity for you!  A young man is looking for a volunteer driver to help him visit his family 2-3 Sundays a month.  He is travelling from Kitchener to Hamilton for these visits. Your task would be to drop him off in the mornings, and pick him up later in the afternoon to bring him home again.  Your mileage will be fully reimbursed.  The young man uses few words to communicate, so he will not talk your ear off, but you will know without a doubt that he appreciates your company by his smiles and happy sounds when you come to pick him up.  For more information, please contact Michelle Scala at michelle.scala@eafwr.on.ca 

If you are interested in one of our volunteer opportunities please fill out our Volunteer Application Form.
