Volunteer with us

A Place to Belong is on a constant search for open-hearted people who want to provide welcome and inclusion for someone who is experiencing life on the edge.

What volunteers might do:

  • One volunteer regularly goes with someone to the museum or art gallery when there are shows on.
  • Another person helps provide transport for a person to community events.
  • Another welcomes a person to her home for cups of coffee and occasional meals.
  • “I volunteer because it gives me a feeling of contributing and helping others”
  • “I meet up with Jill from time to time. I love to hear her laugh when we go out for a coffee. We talk about life and how things are going”
  • There are many simple and ordinary ways that people in community can provide welcome and inclusion.
