Volunteer and Student field-work Program

If everyone helps to hold up the sky, then no one person gets tired.

None of our work at Saint Columba House would be possible without the valuable input of our many community and church volunteers. Over 100 talented and dedicated individuals devote over 11,000 hours annually, the equivalent of 6 full-time positions!
