why volunteerWhy Volunteer?

Getting involved with House of Sophrosyne is an excellent way to make a difference in your community, to ‘give back’ and develop new skills. We are always looking for volunteers to assist us with our special events, childcare and fundraising activities. Other opportunities are also available for those with administrative skills or to contribute your unique talent to a project we may be working on. All volunteers must have a vulnerable persons records check dated within the last 6 months. This completed form must be brought to your local police station (there is a non-refundable charge for volunteers to acquire a vulnerable persons records check).

Board of Directors – Call for Community Member, Quality and Performance Committee

The House of Sophrosyne’s Board of Directors is seeking to appoint a new Community Committee member to its Quality and Performance Committee.  The Quality and Performance Committee ensures that the HoS has clearly defined and coordinated quality improvement and safety management systems in place that continually monitor, evaluate and improve the quality and safety of care and services for HoS clients, provides an avenue for client/family compliments and complaints, as well as ensure a safe environment for staff, volunteers, visitors and guests.  The Committee assists the Board in review and oversight of the following areas:

Quality of Care; Priorities and strategic planning; Monitoring and performance

The role is an unpaid voluntary position.  The Committee member is expected to attend between 3-5 meetings per year.  A Police Clearance is required.

Interested applicants are asked to submit their expression of interest to amandab@sophrosyne.ca

Important Note

We do not use volunteers in our treatment programs; only professional staff are involved in any aspect of service delivery.

We understand that life is busy, and time is precious. We value your time with us, and are looking for volunteers to dedicate a few hours per month.

We will work with your schedule to find time that suits both our needs.
