Please join us in celebrating:
NATIONAL VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION WEEK - APRIL 15TH – 21ST, 2007
Volunteers serve the needs of the client in a way that enhances existing service or provides a broader range of services. Volunteers provide an important link between clients and their community. They contribute their unique talents, skills and knowledge of their community to provide personalized attention to clients, which contributes to quality of life issues, acts as an advocacy, promotes wellness, and social enrichment.
Support our volunteers by wishing them well and letting them know what a great job they are doing in our programs and facilities!

National Volunteer Week is a time for all of us to pause and celebrate the energy and commitment of volunteers. Volunteering is the lifeblood of Canadian communities. It provides us with a sense of connectedness and well-being. It allows us to participate in nurturing our environments, connecting people for good purposes and causes. It allows us to give of ourselves, share our wealth, and express our human values of community and caring while finding solutions to shared challenges. Volunteering helps us build better, stronger, healthier communities.
Our Vision Statement, “Healthy People In Healthy Communities”, is supported and enhanced by the activities of our volunteers. Volunteers help through sharing their time and talents, keeping people connected to their communities during times of illness, change and aging. Their work supports self-esteem, encourages recovery, lessens re-admission for services, and makes possible the purchase of patient comfort items, services and equipment.
In volunteerism there lies the possibility of making a difference, in your life and the life of someone else, and hence in the life of your community!
