Fundraising Support Worker (Volunteer)

Time Commitment: Long-Term (6+ months)

Position Description: The London Housing Registry has been a part of London for over 30 years, and part of our success is the strong commitment and loyalty of our volunteers.

Our volunteers are the stars of our programs, without them we will never thrive. We will never reach three decades of community services, helping the most vulnerable segment of our community.

We are not only serving the chronic and episodic part of the homeless population but the overall population in housing crisis that means anyone who are at risk of becoming homeless.

We are looking for the next star, a person who is passionate and dedicated. A person who is searching for a meaningful volunteer experience. And finally, a person who has a genuine interest in helping the at-risk individuals and families who are in housing crisis.

If you believe that “Quality of Life Starts at Home” and you are interested in gaining front-line social service experience; learn new skills and training; and/or just wanted to jumpstart your career exploration and networking, this is the place to be!
