We have a wide variety of opportunities for volunteers, and because we are hoping to expand from our traditional volunteer positions to look at new areas where we could use volunteers, we hope there will be something that will be of interest to you.
The G.R.O.W. program, is a wellness and leisure program for people with severe mental illness, based on the idea of recovery.

G.R.O.W. is a very hands on program, and a great place to work with people with a mental illness and be involved in evidence based psycho-social rehabilitation.
