Because they give their time, hearts and skills… we thank our volunteers.

We can do no great things, only small things with great love.  – Mother Teresa

 Without a doubt St. Joseph’s volunteers have been an integral part of the care experience that each patient, visitor, resident – and even staff member – receives the moment they walk through the door.

 Whether it’s the smiling face at the information desk ready to assist a patient with directions, calling out “I-24” during a game of bingo, helping a resident pick out a new scarf, or delivering St. Joseph’s publications at each site, St. Joseph’s volunteers give their time, hearts and skills to helping others.

 In return, volunteering can often be a rewarding experience for the individual. Aside from the satisfaction one feels helping others, there’s also the opportunity to develop new skillsets, create new friendships and contribute to a cause that is important to you.

 Macklin Johnson, holding various positions at both Regional Mental Health Care St. Thomas & London says, "I enjoy working with the clients and other volunteers. Volunteering with mental health services is a cause I care about; I have met many great people along the way and I enjoy working with a team that helps to make a difference! Giving back to the community is a great feeling and a personal learning experience."
