Become a Volunteer

The purpose of the peer helper is to provide one-on-one support to Canadian Armed Forces members, veterans or their families affected by the loss of a loved one and to have a positive impact on their healing journey. 

Benefits of being a HOPE volunteer:
•    Helps facilitate an individual’s own ability to process and manage their grief 
•    Offers an opportunity to give back 
•    Makes a positive difference to others needing support on their journey through grief
•    Connects you to a community of support

We invite you to make a difference. Many of our volunteers were once helped by a HOPE peer and eventually became volunteers themselves.

Criteria: 
•    Have experienced the loss of a military family member
•    Have the desire to help other people
•    Have reached a certain point in your healing process 
•    Have completed the HOPE volunteer training 
•    Be ready to listen to someone else’s story and be emotionally prepared to hear it
