Get Involved

House of Friendship does its work with the help of  a lot of volunteers!  If you have some spare time why not consider sharing some of it with us to help those in need?

If you would like to volunteer with the Emergency Food Hamper Program call us at 519-742-0662 or send us an email.

If you would like to volunteer with any of the other programs at House of Friendship, please get in touch with Tony Bender by phone at 519-742-8327 or by email.
