BC - Circle of Friends

MCC BC Office

Circle of Friends is a new pilot program of the Mennonite Central Committee BC, modelled after MCC Ontario's program, in which groups of 2-3 volunteers form a "circle of friends" around an individual transitioning from homelessness or shelter living back into the community.

Volunteers with the People in Poverty program interested in developing relationships may join with a small group of 2-3 volunteers to form a "Circle of Friends" for an individual as they transition from homelessness and shelter living back into the Waterloo Region community.

Be an Indigenous Neighbours Volunteer

MCC Ontario

MCC Canada's Indigenous Neighbours program strives to build respectful relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. Volunteers assist in facilitating opportunities for MCC constituents through the Blanket Exercise and by supporting Indigenous Artisans through the Niska Pop-up Market. In response to COVID-19, our Blanket Exercises are on hold, but we are happy to announce that our Niska program is once again looking for volunteers to help facilitate sales at events as health regulations permit.
