Why Volunteer

Benefits of Volunteering

  • Provide a vital service to your community
  • Help frail and isolated seniors
  • Meet new people and make new friends

Our volunteers are key to the success of a range of programs from friendly visiting to fundraising. Their caring and sharing help seniors, adults with disabilities, and the chronically ill to live at home and maintain as independent of a lifestyle as possible.

Younger volunteers learn transferable skills and gain work experience as a volunteer to supplement their resume when searching for a job. We also offer placement positions for students.


AODA & Serve-Ability Training for Volunteers

TransCare is committed to excellence in serving all customers, including people with disabilities.
