We are a community service centre located in one of the lowest income areas in Ottawa. OUR MISSION is to provide services to the community that feed and nurture physical and emotional wellness.
OUR VISION - a strong, healthy, safe, self-sustaining community where the residents are confident, empowered and independent; where those who have need for food, companionship, housing, education, or knowledge, are provided for in a coordinated fashion with dignity and responsiveness.
The Caldwell Family Centre requires volunteer assistance in the Baby Depot and Toy Library, Wednesdays from 8:30am to 12:00 noon and Thursdays from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. Duties include providing low-income parents with baby supplies such as diapers, formula, baby food; lending age-appropriate toys; and maintaining accurate records. It is expected that volunteers treat all families equally, in a respectful, non-judgmental manner. Current Police Records Check for the Vulnerable Sector is required. If you are interested in this very rewarding volunteer opportunity, please contact Director@CaldwellCentre.ca.
