Bissell Centre’s work is based on building positive relationships with community members, staff and volunteers, as well as individuals in the community committed to addressing issues of poverty. Approximately 800 people volunteer at Bissell Centre each year, spending more than 8,000 hours supporting the organization’s programs and community. Volunteers are critical to Bissell Centre and play a vital role in helping us achieve our mission.
