Community Work is Heart Work

At Spence Neighbourhood Association, we know about heart work. Our staff, Board of Directors, volunteers, and supporters are committed to revitalizing and renewing our community as well as activating and engaging our community members (who live, work, andvisit here) in building and rebuilding our neighbourhood. We strive to achieve this through caring, connecting, and communicating.

We rely on volunteers to enhance the growth and development of our organization. We turn to our community members to help direct the focus of our programming. Volunteers are needed to make the community direction possible. Our volunteers help expand our programs and ensure our organization remains an important part of the community. Our volunteers dedicate themselves to the neighbourhood and become important assets to the development of our organization, and to our community. The relationship between our volunteers and the community ensures that we are enhancing our programming through the vision of the community and that we are meeting their needs. Our goal is to get volunteers participating in our organization by placing them in programs that are well suited to their individual interests and skills. We are always seeking volunteers who are creative and have new and innovative ideas for our programs.

Food – More than just a basic need

Want to make a meal for us this summer? Please consider signing up for the WE24 Meal Train!

Food is not only a basic need, but an opportunity to build relationships and engage with our community. WE24 shelters and feeds 30-60 youth every night over the summer. Sharing a meal is a great way to connect with others.

Every meal makes a huge difference for our staff team and the folks who access WE24! The Community support that we’ve received so far through sharing meals means the world to us.

Thank you so much to everyone who has already volunteered and those who sign up to provide a meal in the future.

Check out our Meal Train page to learn about how WE24 began and to volunteer a meal.
