Volunteering with Abrigo

Abrigo Centre’s volunteer program is built on the strengths of dedicated individuals.  Our volunteers generously contribute their time and energy to support our mission.  Some of the agency’s activities enriched by the help of our volunteers are:

  • Assisting clients with applications forms;
  • Providing support for programs and workshops that we deliver;
  • Organization celebrations, fundraising, and other special events.

Our volunteers are a vital and integral part of Abrigo Centre, who give of themselves and in return enrich their lives by developing new skills.  In fiscal 2015/16, our 89 volunteers and 17 student volunteers provided 16,726 hours of direct service. This has generated an infusion of tremendous energy and skill into our agency.
