Volunteering at Homewood

An integral part of Homewood's mental health and addiction programs and services

Volunteer Services is a Homewood Health Centre department. For further information, including screening process details, contact Volunteer Services at 519.824.1010 extension 2262, fax 519.767.3564 or e-mail us at volunteer@homewoodhealth.com

Who can volunteer?

Homewood welcomes community members over the age of 16, from high school students to senior citizens, who are dependable and have a sincere desire to share their time.

How much time should you give?

We ask that volunteers commit a minimum of two to four hours per week for a period ranging from three to six months or up to one year, depending upon the program. Volunteers of the café, gift shop and patient library are expected to make a minimum 70-hour commitment.
