Please note that we ask our Individual Volunteers to make a regular commitment to the positions that they fill. Shifts are typically 3‐4 hours each. We do have opportunities in our food prep, serving meals or janitorial for individuals who can only volunteer on certain dates (please book in advance).
This is a night to have fun with our Wii gaming system including DDR pads, play pingpong or card or board games. The more people the merrier!
Food Prep: Daytime Hours
An opportunity to help those staying at the Lighthouse receive nutrition and sustenance. We offer three meals a day plus snacks, 365 days a year. We feature a hot breakfast Wednesdays and Saturdays, Lunch is a simple meal such as soup and buns, and supper is the full meal deal, with a largest meal for Sunday supper.
Food Service: Breakfast – 8 am – 9 am, Lunch 12 pm – 1 pm, Supper 4 pm – 5 pm
The Lighthouse meals are served cafeteria style. Volunteers help pour beverages, portions food and help with dish washing. This is a great chance to meet the majority of the clients and serve them. During meals is also an excellent opportunity to talk with those who are staying at the Lighthouse.
While volunteering in the Coffee House, you will be part of a team made up of both staff and volunteers. Coffee House is a time for people from the Lighthouse and those from the wider community to converse, relax, and have some coffee and treats. It is a low-key time where people can come and go, share experiences they are going through, and connect to services if needed.
Musical Entertainment for Coffee House: Fridays 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Share your talent with our guests in a laid-back atmosphere Friday evenings. Whether you are an old-pro or just starting out, we appreciate the gift of music.
Donation Room (Anytime)
The Lighthouse is grateful to receive donations of goods and we appreciate volunteer support to help organize and sort our clothing and toiletry donations to make sure they are ready and easily accessible for our clients.
Janitorial: Daytime Hours (Anytime)
The Lighthouse is a busy place with many people coming and going. There are always opportunities and areas which could use a good cleaning. You will work along side our own janitorial team, with all supplies provided.
Maintenance Assistant: Monday to Friday, between 9am and 4pm
We have a large facility with around 230 people sleeping under our roof each night. With a lot of wear and tear on our building the maintenance team could use your help to do odd jobs around the building.
