When Canadians volunteer, everyone benefits. That is the magic of volunteering; it creates value for all. From opportunities to develop new skills, to finding deep and meaningful personal connections, volunteering positively impacts all involved.
CMHA Kelowna is a volunteer-driven organization that depends on people like you to help us to develop our vision and provide services to our community. We provide a place for people to contribute to something meaningful, follow their passion, build skills and friendships.
Our Help, Housing & Hope initiatives were supported by 420 of volunteers who gave almost 8,000 hours this last year. That’s the equivalent of over 4 full time employees.
Whether serving as board members, knowledge philanthropists, event planners, group facilitators, or fundraising in the community at events, volunteers are the life-blood of our organization and they make it possible for us to be sustainable and relevant in our community.
