At My Sisters’ Place, we have adopted The Canadian Code For Volunteer Involvement (CCVI) as an integral part of operational practice, to be made known to every employee and volunteer, and to be made readily available to every staff member and volunteer for consistent reference and consultation.
It doesn’t matter how much or how little time you have to offer. All that matters is that you have the desire to get involved!
There are a variety of ways that My Sisters’ Place volunteers impact the lives – and the quality of life – of the individuals served by our agency. At all of our sites, volunteers are at the heart of our services. Today we have more than 50 volunteers supporting our work. Their value is incalculable!
