   About the Position

Impact Statement
By sharing your time and gifts with Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region, you would be contributing to a community where everyone belongs.

Being a host family is a unique volunteer role based around inclusion, belonging, and dignity. Family Home is an opportunity where you would invite an individual who identifies as having a disability into your home. The matches are informed by the individual needs and interests of the person staying with you. Expenses will be reimbursed up to a set amount.

This friendly pair of women in their late 60’s are all over EAFWR’s YouTube
videos! This is your chance to bring that amazing energy into your own home. Some of the many hobbies they enjoy include craft kits, tablet games, Bingo, and upcycling mementos. Above all, they LOVE chatting over coffee!

Most days would involve seeing them off to their day programs, dinner, and some light personal care. These twins thrive on patience and kindness backed by a firm routine - show them your good side and they’ll bring out the best in all of you!

A home with minimal stairs is required, and these two women need separate bedrooms.

Family Home providers will receive reimbursement for service and support from the FamilyHome Program at Extend-A-Family.
