If you are interested in undertaking very rewarding work, you might be interested in volunteering within Helping With Furniture (HWF). We are currently seeking candidates for the position of Client-Visitor Liaison.

Individuals or families in need of furniture (clients) are referred to HWF by a wide range of social agencies in the Ottawa area. Their information is entered into a spreadsheet, from which several clients are selected each week. Before receiving furniture, these clients are visited at home by a team of two HWF volunteers (« visitors ») who make a complete list of their needs. The role of the Client-Visitor Liaison is to communicate with the clients in order to assess their needs and to select the clients who will be visited the following week as well as communicate their selections to the visitors.

This position will not only open the door to discovering extraordinary people whose realities are not always visible to most of us, but will also allow you to play a role in making a difference in their lives.

Please request the job description for more information on this position.




Êtes-vous à la recherche d’un poste très valorisant? Si oui, vous seriez un bon candidat pour notre organisme Aidons avec des meubles – HWF. Présentement, nous sommes à la recherche d’un(e) bénévole pour le poste de Liaison client-visiteur.

Les personnes ou familles qui ont besoin de meubles (clients) d’Aidons avec des meubles,
nous parviennent d'une grande variété de services sociaux de la région d'Ottawa. Ces données sont entrées dans un tableur à partir duquel plusieurs clients sont sélectionnés chaque semaine. Avant de recevoir des meubles, ces clients reçoivent la visite d'une équipe de deux bénévoles de HWF (les « visiteurs ») qui établissent une liste de leurs besoins. Le rôle du « bénévole de liaison client-visiteur » consiste à communiquer avec les clients afin de déterminer leurs besoins et de choisir les clients qui seront visités la semaine suivante, ainsi que de communiquer les noms des clients aux visiteurs.

Il s'agit d'un poste qui non seulement vous permettra de faire la découverte de gens extraordinaires dont la réalité n'est pas toujours visible pour la plupart d'entre nous, mais aussi de contribuer à faire une grande différence dans leur vie.

Money raised from this project goes towards holiday gifts for OCAPDD individuals, many of whom have no families, special services, special classes and many other needed items.. The Garlic Project is run entirely by volunteers. Each year volunteers plant between 35,000 to 40,000 garlic bulbs. They are then covered for the winter. Come April the hay is removed to allow growth and the weeds appear. Between the months of April and July volunteers are needed to weed the rows of garlic weekly so that the garlic plant is not choaked and can grow to its full potential. At the end of July the garlic is picked and again many volunteers are required to clean, sort, braid and get things ready for the sale the first week in August. Volunteers are required to cover the garlic fields with Hay. Approx the last week in November. On the job training / assistance is provided!!

We have over 300 people with disabilities in Ottawa who are feeling isolated and alone, wishing they had a volunteer friend and advocate through our organization. Most of them will have to wait two and a half years to be matched. Will you help one person to get off of our waiting list?

Being a volunteer advocate is convenient, flexible, and rewarding. We match people one-on-one, who live in locations convenient to each other, and with similar interests and shared activities. You spend time with your match, with the possibility of also including your family and friends. You get together three or four times a month at your convenience, and do what friends do: go for coffee, take a walk, or get out to an event. This can have a huge impact in the life of someone with a disability who is feeling isolated and alone.

As a volunteer you need to be over the age of 18 and make a minimum commitment of 12 months to this role [Note: your status in Canada may affect your ability to make this commitment e.g. visitor visa, student visa, refugee claimant]. Preparation and ongoing support are provided.

À Ottawa, plus de 300 personnes isolées à cause de leurs handicaps souhaiteraient être jumelées à travers notre organisation avec un ami et défenseur bénévole. La plupart attendront 2 ans et demi avant d’être jumelées. Aimeriez-vous aider une de ces personnes à être rayée de nos listes d’attente?

Si vous aimez passer du temps avec les gens et vous êtes disponible pendant une ou deux heures par semaine, nous vous invitons à communiquer avec nous. Un bénévole doit avoir 18 ans ou plus et être prêt à s’engager pour un jumelage de 12 mois [N.B : Votre statut au Canada peut affecter votre capacité à réaliser cet engagement, par exemple visa de visiteur, visa d'étudiant, demandeur de statut de réfugié]. L’encadrement et le soutien continu sont fournis aux bénévoles.

Vous pouvez avoir un profond impact dans la vie d’une personne ayant un handicap de plusieurs façons: en diminuant sa solitude, en l’aidant à réaliser ses rêves, en développant son réseau personnel, en diminuant sa vulnérabilité, en augmentant son estime de soi et en contribuant à améliorer sa santé physique et mentale.
