Welcome to Emmaus House

Get Involved

Volunteers are always welcome at Emmaus House.  There are so many ways that a person could get involved….here are some ideas:

  • Come and spend an hour or two baking (cookies, desserts, bread and buns)
  • Organize an in house group activity, such as a craft afternoon, a group game, a music event, an afternoon tea, come and do a weekly reading, have a ladies manicure afternoon. What ideas do you have?
  • Begin a one-on-one friendship with a resident. Some residents don’t have family nearby and would really love having someone to take them out shopping occasionally or just going out for coffee.

The possibilities are endless!

We currently have a volunteer who does all our snow clearing.  We have a volunteer who does all our interior painting.  We have a volunteer who bakes our muffins (because we have muffins for breakfast 2 mornings a week). We have a music group that comes once a week.  One volunteer comes for 2 – 3 hours on Wednesday afternoons so that the house manager can go grocery shopping.  Another volunteer does our photography.  There is a mother/daughter who come once a week to play games.  These are examples to show you that the possibilities really are endless!  All of these things are so helpful and really help to enhance the atmosphere at Emmaus House. 

Please note that potential volunteers will be required to obtain a Criminal Record Check.
