Volunteering is a fun and rewarding experience. At HHHS, 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.
Joining a Community of 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, and we will work with you to create a mutually beneficial arrangement.

Our volunteers have found that contributing their time to HHHS has taught them new skills, let them meet new and interesting people in our community, and given them great satisfaction by knowing they are helping people while building a stronger health care system for the Haliburton Highlands.
As part of our community of volunteers, you will receive volunteer newsletters, emails and cards, have the opportunity to take part in ongoing workshops and education, enjoy volunteer appreciation gatherings and events, be recognized for your efforts, and be a member of the HHHS team.
