In the heart of Parkdale; we have become the core support agency for those who struggle with issues of poverty, mental health, addictions, homelessness and food security. Members access services and develop relationships with our staff and one another through our core areas of operation: a drop-in centre, a peer-support program, an outreach program and supportive housing. The simple act of walking through our doors is what makes a person a PARC member. Choosing to give back, create and grow is how PARC members contribute and help build our community.
Volunteering is a great experience for all. We are grateful you are considering becoming a volunteer with PARC. We have diverse projects going on within PARC and diverse skills, from motivated people like you, are needed.
PARC members, community members and students volunteer regularly. Member volunteer involvement comes from a connection to the PARC community, a sense of satisfaction at being able to give back, and for some, a desire to rebuild lives by acquiring experience and training that may lead to paid employment.
PARC benefits from the contributions of volunteers in every area: the Kitchen, the Drop-In, the planning and operation of a wide variety of programs, social justice activism, and administration.
