HOW YOU CAN HELP
Volunteer

Volunteer at CRC, contribute to the Regent Park community, and be surprised at how it changes your life.

One of the things that we have found with our volunteers is that they always report that, no matter how much they give, they always seem to get back as much or more in learning and other things they value.

At CRC we call this the quality of “reciprocation”. Or, as John Deacon, Honorary Board Chair and a valued volunteer since 1967 puts it, “it goes both ways”.

We want everyone who has contact with CRC to feel welcomed, valued, and respected.
