Victim Services of S.D.G. & A. is committed to recruiting volunteers who understand the uniqueness of our communities. Our comprehensive screening and training program ensures that the people to whom we provide support are assisted with dignity, respect, compassion and empathy from knowledgeable, trained and caring Volunteer Crisis Responders.
“Volunteering is the most fundamental act of citizenship and philanthropy in our society. It is offering time, energy and skills of one’s own free will. It is an extension of being a good neighbour, transforming a collection of houses into a community, as people become involved in the improvement of their surroundings and choose to help others. By caring and contributing to change, volunteers decrease suffering and disparity, while they gain skills, self-esteem and change in their lives. People work to improve the lives of their neighbours and, in return, enhance their own lives”
