“Act as if what you do makes a difference…It does!” ~ William James
The Volunteer Program "Simcoe Strong" has been very successful. Our Homes are working diligently with both our community partners as well as the Museum to find ways to provide effective service to our current and prospect volunteers. As well, new Volunteer referral cards are being added. Any new volunteer referred to by a current volunteer will be included in monthly giveaways.

Our Volunteer Dedication
Our dedicated Simcoe Strong volunteer Jan Sparling has implemented a phenomenal new Intergenerational Program – Sewing for Ages.
This new exciting program has been celebrated and showcased by our local press,
