Volunteering with Mosaic Support Services

Our organization couldn't be what it is today without the generous help from people like you.

We all work hard, and we all have our own way to unwind. Some people exercise, some people read, and some people volunteer.

Volunteers at Mosaic Support Services lend their time and expertise to support the development and delivery of a range of services that promote independence for people with disabilities. 

We offer a warm, friendly and professional environment to ensure the program is rewarding and beneficial for both Mosaic and our volunteers, with opportunities for personal and professional development.

The perfect person

At Mosaic, we’re big on values.

We want volunteers who are big on listening, big on challenging expectations, big on encouraging others, and big on celebrating life. Most importantly, we would go miles for smiles. If you’re a like-minded person with a talent that can be used to stimulate our clients’ skills and interests, join our family.

See real change as a result of your effort. Witness the remarkable effect you have on people with disabilities and their families. Volunteer today.
