You Can Volunteer

Volunteers are an integral part of the Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society. It is through our volunteer's efforts that we are able to meet many of the goals and objectives of the agency. Our volunteers are truly the backbone of our organization, without their dedication and commitment; we could not offer the level of service we do to our community.

We are looking for volunteers who:

  • Will respect our client's right to confidentiality
  • Are able to suspend judgment when encountering behaviors and attitudes foreign to his/her own
  • Can work with others without discrimination as to nationality, race, belief, class, sexual orientation or gender
  • Have personal attitudes that reflect the aims of the Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society
  • Are able to make a commitment to their work at the Shelter
  • Have the ability to respect others and listen with compassion
  • Are open, friendly, dependable, willing to learn and self-reliant
  • Volunteers must be 18 years of age & have not accessed the services of Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society within the past 2 years
