COVID-19 notes:

  • We have relaxed criteria for posting volunteer opportunities due to the urgent need for COVID-19 Response. Volunteers are responsible for confirming the legitimacy of the group or organization(s) they are working with. Never hand over money or confidential information to groups looking for volunteers.
  • Please confirm that the organization you want to volunteer with can ensure your safety.

DESCRIPTION

Being a host family is a unique volunteer role based around inclusion, belonging, and dignity. Respite is an opportunity where you would invite an individual who identifies as having a disability into your home. Respite opportunities typically range from 2 to 7 days, and are informed by the individual needs and interests of the person staying with you. Expenses will be reimbursed up to a set amount.

You'll enjoy all the fun and fulfillment of building a relationship with an individual who is well matched with you and your family.
