Project Comfort relies solely on the support of our volunteers. Even a few hours a month will contribute significantly in providing comfort and assistance to those facing challenges in our community.
Below are key committees where individuals can bring their unique skill sets and ideas to our initiatives.
We welcome new ideas and concepts to assist operators and guests of respite centres. Project Comfort, with a established resource of volunteers, is ready and willing to assist with implementing programs and initiatives that you would like to undertake.
Have you opened a new location, redesigned your shop, or added a new product or service? Don't keep it to yourself, let folks know.
Every Saturday local volunteers serve lunch to quests at the St Felix Respite Center at Lamport Stadium (69 Fraser Avenue - corner of Fraser and East Liberty)
From serving dinner to washing dishes there is always some assistance volunteers can offer. Only a few hours volunteers arrive for 11:00 am and are finished at approximately 1:00 pm.
Whether you want to volunteer just a single time, once a month or weekly your kindness is always welcomed.

The Davenport Women's Shelter ( 348 Davenport Road) opened in January 2019. Phase Two is scheduled to open later this year adding more support and living accommodations.
Operated by the YWCA they have approached Project Comfort asking us to assist them in engaging the community through activities that we are supporting in the Fort York, Liberty Village and City Place shelters.
We are actively seeking individuals to form part of the leadership team to support this shelter.
The leadership team meets one evening a month ( data and location determined by the leadership group) and provides guidance to volunteers. The leadership's teams primary responsibility is to review activity and events plans to ensure they align with the goals of the YWCA and Project Comfort.
While members of the leadership team do attend events from time to time events are supported by lead volunteers.
