Opportunity Description:

I am so pleased to announce that effective as of Monday, July 5th, 2021, WISH is allowed to resume the onboarding of community volunteers for our Drop-In and Shelter programs!

WISH’s Mission is to improve the health, safety, and well-being of women and gender diverse folks engaged in Vancouver’s street-based sex trade. Our dedicated volunteer team, ages 19 and up, perform a variety of tasks, including, but not limited to helping to serve and prepare a hot, nutritious meal; sorting and dispensing clothing, makeup, and toiletries donations; helping women sign up for showers and access shelters, some light janitorial duties, and of course, the opportunity to connect one-on-one with the individuals who access the Drop-In. We serve an average of 300-350 individuals per night across all of our programs and services.

We ask for a minimum of two shifts per month for a long-term commitment of at least six months. All volunteer shifts run from 4:30pm-8:30pm, 8:30am–12:30pm, and 1:30pm-5:30pm, and the Drop-In is open seven days a week. We also require volunteers to volunteer one of their two shifts on a Friday or Saturday, along with one shift from Sunday to Thursday.

Please note that volunteering for the purpose of gaining research or information for projects is not allowed. Volunteers must self-identify as women, non-binary, or gender-diverse, and must be over the age of 19. WISH does not generally grant outside access to our Drop-In space. We expect volunteers to be at WISH because they want to contribute to the well-being of women who face various systemic barriers and marginalization in society.
