HHHS Volunteer Services

Volunteering for the Haliburton Highlands Health Services (HHHS) is a fun and rewarding experience.  We have over 350 dedicated volunteers who generously contribute their time, talents and skills to deliver programs, participate in activities, and provide services and funding to our patients, residents and clients in Haliburton County. We greatly appreciate each and every one of our volunteers.

Volunteers are essential partners and play an important role in all levels of the organization.  We try to ensure that volunteers experience fulfilling volunteer work with all the challenges and experiences they are seeking.

There are numerous opportunities at HHHS to share your passion, your skills and your kind hearts. Let us help you find your perfect Volunteer Opportunities.  How to Get Involved Brochure

Our volunteers have found that contributing their time to HHHS has:

·  Taught them new skills;

·  Given them great satisfaction by knowing they are helping people and building a stronger health care system for the Haliburton Highlands; and

·  Let them meet new and interesting people in the community.

Being a Volunteer, notice I capitalized "V", is such a huge blessing to me. I feel that I should be thanking you instead of you thanking me. I reap so much more than I give. Volunteering keeps me involved in the community, I feel I am contributing, and of course I meet some wonderful people. When I first moved up to the north land 4 years ago I needed to connect with my surroundings and those who lived there....so volunteering was the very thing.  It not only allowed me to meet people in the community, learn about the community but also learn about the lay of the land & the roads."  AG, HHHS Volunteer
