Friendship Makes A Difference

Circle of Friends supports individuals and families transitioning from homelessness and shelter-living back into the Abbotsford/Mission community.

Circles are small groups of 2-3 volunteers and an individual transitioning out of homelessness that meet each week for a couple of hours. These Circles create a network of support for folks in transition, with activities tailored to meet individual needs: one week a Circle may work on a budget, and the next they may go for coffee and visit.

Ways to Support Circle of Friends:

  • Volunteers are needed for "Circles" to help support individuals making this transition. No special experience or background is required to volunteer, but volunteers should be compassionate, patient, and good listeners.
