April 15 to 21, 2018 was Volunteer Week in Canada when the nation recognizes and celebrates our fabulous volunteers.
Yaletown House is fortunate to have a team of volunteers who selflessly dedicate their time, energy, and attention to the benefit of our residents. While juggling careers, school, families, social lives, and their personal well-being, they have collectively committed more than 2,582 hours of service to our organization this past year. We are grateful! The group helps our residents to find meaning, engagement, and to feel a sense of belonging
On April 17 we hosted a celebration and welcomed over 30 of our team of 60 plus volunteers. Delicious Rocky Mountain Pizza was served as well as entertainment, gifts hand-made by the residents and lots of thanks from our Executive Director, Volunteer Coordinator and families. This year we gave special recognition to nine volunteers who each have over ten years of service as volunteers at Yaletown House. One volunteer has been with us for 35 years!
To all of the volunteers who share their lives with us, and so graciously show compassion and support to our residents — thank you so much for all that you do! We value you greatly and consider you part of the (big) Yaletown House family.
