Volunteers for Housing remain an ongoing need and positions are available for individuals wanting to mentor a client and small groups of 2-3 wanting to help with evening suppers at a housing project. We have an ongoing need for those wanting to join our sandwich making group on Thursday afternoon and those who want to serve Sunday lunch to shelter clients. We post updates and new positions available on our web site www.alphahousecalgary.com and with Volunteer Calgary www.volunteercalgary.ab.ca as we move forward.
