Better at Home - Dawson Creek

How to Become a Better at Home Volunteer During the Covid-19 Crisis. 

Because the Better at Home office is currently closed, we are not able to receive new volunteers in person.

Please follow the instructions below if you would like to apply to be a volunteer and assist seniors in your community.

  2. BC211 will complete the record check that is mandatory for all volunteers and send your information on to us in Dawson Creek.
  3. You fill out the application below and hit 'submit'.
  4. We contact you and arrange for you to start volunteering.
