Volunteering

Therapeutic Volunteer Program

The Therapeutic Volunteer Program is part of a broader therapeutic work program established in the mid 1980's. TVP was created to provide persons living with a mental illness the opportunity to volunteer in their community. It allows people with an opportunity to engage in a rehabilitative process through participation. TVP assists people in developing pre-employment skills and increased self confidence in the pursuit of greater independence. Some funds are available to offset costs incurred by participants.
