Volunteers play a vital role in the day-to-day operation of Children’s Cottage Society.
As a volunteer for the Cottage you will work alongside staff and other volunteers. Whether you are an individual wishing to provide a few hours of meaningful volunteer work, or a corporate group looking for a great team building opportunity, our volunteers help support all of our programs at the Cottage.

Crisis Nursery

In-Home Infant Respite Program

Where you can assist parents of newborn infants (up to six months) by providing home-visits for much needed respite.

Special Events
