HOW TO GIVE
We are a Christian charity, financially supported by concerned individuals, businesses and churches who want to help us keep the doors open. Through supporters, donors and fundraisers, we are able to keep on helping in Durham Region.
Please prayerfully consider supporting this work financially on a regular basis. For more information on financial support options please contact us, take a look at our annual fundraiser events, or click on Donate to provide immediate financial assistance through CanadaHelps.org.
There are minimally two types of volunteer opportunities available at the Centre:On-site—volunteering for a shift on a Mon., Wed., Thurs., or Fri. in your community. Our volunteers are trained to work with our clients and families. The volunteers provide support for our families and clients, distribute supplies free of charge to our clients, organize the donations as they come in, assemble the gift layettes for the newborns of our clients.
Board members are trained prior to participating as well. They provide oversight to the ministry and meet once monthly and commit to securing sponsorship of a table at our annual dinner event.Both types of volunteering require application (click here), police check and completion of training prior to involvement. For your police check for on-site volunteering, you may require a volunteer duties letter. You can call in to request that - It has to be personalized.
There is staff supervision available on-site.
The next volunteer training is a Phase 1 training for volunteers. This training was scheduled Saturday January 11, 2020 starting at 9:00 a.m. (until 4:00 p.m.) at our Oshawa site. Please bring your Bible and note that lunch is not provided (bring your own or there are a couple of options closeby).
If you would like to participate in the next training, we will need your application at least ONE WEEK prior to training to proceed. This information MUST be submitted beforehand. For more info, call Sue at 905-720-3252 for more information or contact us by email.
helping us help others
Thanks to all our guests who braved the elements to join us on November 7 at the Ajax Convention Centre. It snowed again this year! It was a fun night with good friends and great food. Dr. Jim Beverley was our guest speaker at the event along with our client who shared her story with the rest of the guests. Raptors tickets were raffled and a PHC quiz.
