This week is a dedicated to recognition of volunteers in Canada. At Victoria Women’s Transition House we honour each of the volunteers who have devoted many hours to support women and children who face the difficult issue of abuse in their lives. Our volunteers play with children, answer the crisis line, cook and bake, clean and organize, speak in the community, bake, pick up and sort donations, offer their specialized skills such as yoga or massage. Last year volunteers contributed about 130 volunteers contributed over 7500 hours.

Our volunteers go through an extensive training program – to quote one volunteer “I learned so much about this provocative issue and enjoyed the deep discussions and activities!” If you are interested in joining our volunteer team, call Dianne at 592-2927 ext 222 or see the volunteer section of the website
