Office Support Volunteering

Springwell’s mission is to provide comprehensive services to seniors, individuals with disabilities and those who provide care, guided by a commitment to an individual’s right to live independently in the community.

Springwell provides diverse services in a variety of settings and communities to over 11,000 per year. We can always use some extra help in our office to do this important work.


Springwell’s Office Support Volunteers provide valuable administrative, clerical and organizational support to various programs and departments at the agency.


Springwell has more than 30 years of experience working with volunteers. One thing we know for sure is that kindness matters. Because of Springwell Volunteers: People are less lonely. People are less anxious. People can get to important medical appointments. People feel heard. People are able to enjoy a healthy meal in a friendly environment. People know someone cares.

Each volunteer is screened to determine their interests, trained and carefully matched with a senior in the community. Program managers are always available to answer volunteers’ questions and handle any concerns that may arise.
