Explore volunteering with The Bethany Hope Centre

 “It’s amazing what we can do when we come together.” 

At the Bethany Hope Centre, we depend on the generosity of our community for help in delivering our services. Although financial help is always welcome for a non-profit charitable organization such as ours,  we also need people to volunteer their time or talent so that we can provide the many programs and services on which our clients depend.

There are a number of established volunteer positions available but we are also looking for whatever skills you feel might be a good fit!  If you are willing and have some time to donate to a worthy cause, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

We provide the following opportunities:

Do you know people who would like to share the love?

This volunteer option can be very rewarding for:


  • Family Groups
  • Co-workers
  • Corporate Sponsored Volunteerism
  • Groups of Students


(One-time volunteers are not required to go through police check or full volunteer screening.)

Supported Volunteerism

There are a limited number of corporate or large group opportunities and due to the resources that are required to ensure a successful experience, we are grateful when corporate groups make a minimum $20 per person donation or provide a food, kitchen, spice, school supplies or infant item drive. Donations will be allocated to the program of your choice.
