The WOCRC’s volunteers play an essential role in the communities of far west Ottawa by supporting service delivery of the programs and services offered by the Centre.

The volunteer program offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities. Our volunteers deliver meals to seniors and adults with a physical disability, provide companionship to isolated seniors, assist in running the Adult Day Program, help children and youth with homework, participate in preschool drop-ins, support women in Violence Against Women programs and much more.

The WOCRC’s group of volunteers invests about 30,000 hours of their time by providing much needed support to members of their community, their neighbours.

Each year, the WOCRC celebrates and recognizes its volunteers through a volunteer recognition breakfast during National Volunteer Recognition Week at which the Eva James Award is presented to one volunteer nominated and selected by committee.
