Join Our Team
Community Care Durham relies on its hardworking team of staff and more than 2,000 dedicated volunteers to ensure the successful delivery of our services to the community. With service locations in every local community across Durham Region, we are committed to provide care and support to over 12,000 adults and their caregivers who have needs related to aging, physical and/or mental health.
There are many interesting and rewarding opportunities for you to help our clients maintain their independence and quality of life. Please note that our need for volunteers often occurs during weekday hours with limited time in the evenings and on weekends.
Here's how our volunteers made a difference in the community last year:
160,703 hours were contributed by volunteers
106,626 hot and/or frozen Meals on Wheels were delivered to 1,235 clients
56,415 drives for medical appointments and grocery shopping
