If you would like to be part of a dynamic team of people who are making a difference in the lives of others, consider the opportunities we have available. At the Anchor of Hope Pregnancy and Family Care Centre we realize that the success we experience with the people we serve is directly related to our volunteer staff. The exceptional attitude of kindness and mercy, mixed together with a deep sense of dedication and commitment, has created for us a community of care-givers whose love for people changes lives.
Our volunteer opportunities include:
- In-centre peer counseling
- Grief and loss peer counseling (post-abortion, post-adoption)
- Reception and administration
- Processing material donations
- Assisting clients in clothing rooms
- Facilitating prenatal, parenting and life-skills classes
- Teaching community education in schools
- Fundraising and development
Because of the nature of our ministry, most of our positions require a minimum commitment of at least one year. Another essential is a recognition of the true intrinsic value of all human life. Some of our client-friends have heroically survived a complicated or destructive childhood or are currently living in a difficult situation. As care-givers we must be able to remain completely non-judgmental in our attitudes while at the same time being filled with hope and love.

We are privileged to partner with areas colleges in providing practicum experiences for their students. These students give many hours of service in exchange for a unique learning opportunity with client contact. While many of these students stay on as volunteers, others take this valuable experience into their careers. Seeing lives changed by offering help during a crisis time is a life enhancing experience for staff, volunteers and students.
