Like a tree, volunteerism is the root of community building. Our volunteers act as our roots, providing us with the grounding and nutrients to support our growth. As we grow, our reach becomes further, and together, we become stronger in our efforts to provide essential services to all those that need them.
At Hong Fook, we have been fortunate to work with many committed volunteers that provide tremendous amounts of their time, energy, and resource to assist clients on their mental health journey. Our volunteers join our family tree, becoming key members in reducing stigma, promoting mental health, and ultimately, helping those reach their mental wellness goals.
Nonetheless, we always welcome new volunteers to our family because we need your help. Without volunteers, Hong Fook could not exist. Our remarkable growth and impact has been inextricably bound to an abundant and passionate group of volunteers, which we hope that you will join by bringing your particular talents, skills, knowledge, enthusiasm and energy.
There are many other volunteer opportunities in Toronto, but at Hong Fook we truly want you to grow and receive something special during your time with us.

All volunteers 16 years of age or older are welcome at all of the sites managed by Hong Fook Mental Health Association.
As a way to commemorate the hard work and dedication of all our volunteers, Hong Fook holds appreciation dinners and offers our volunteers as nominees to the Ontario Volunteer Service Awards. Volunteer hours will also be recorded and you can also take these hours back to your school or write them down on a university application.
By giving your help to us even for just a short period of time, you are providing the resources to help those for years to come, creating a continual support system that will endure and expand.
