Volunteers are very integral to what we do at ESS. Nearly 300 volunteers support ESS, our programs, services and fundraising initiatives. We could never accomplish as much as we do or support as many seniors and caregivers in the Etobicoke community without our volunteers. In fact, some of our programs or fundraising events would not even exist without our volunteers!

Our volunteers play a positive role in the health and well being of our clients. Their daily contributions allow us to touch the lives of our community members and to fulfill our agency’s mission of helping seniors in their desire to remain in their own homes and community. Every role is important and no role is too small. From helping us raise critical funds and providing social companionship by visiting or calling a senior who lives alone, to driving seniors to critical medical appointments and helping provide lunch and positive social interaction to seniors in our day and lunch programs.

Each volunteer brings their own set of skills, qualities, life experiences and talents. We are proud to have a dedicated team of volunteers whose personal stories, generous spirit, caring nature and willingness to give their time, inspire us daily.There are many benefits to volunteering with ESS – learning new skills, meeting new people, working with seniors and making a difference in the community!

We provide a variety of volunteer opportunities to meet your interests, goals, schedule and availability. We want your volunteer experience with us to be fun, rewarding and positive. We will do the best to work with you to find a volunteer position that is a right fit for your needs. Many of our volunteers have stayed on to volunteer long term, developing meaningful friendships with our clients and lasting bonds with our agency and staff.

We look forward to having you as a part of our ESS Family!
