Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead

Who We Are

Thursday’s Child was founded in 1989 by a small group of thoughtful and committed people; people who cared, people who embodied the notion of compassion.

Our Agency remains committed to those we serve and hope that you may share your talents and time to help make the lives of your neighbours a little better.

There is no task too small. From collecting pennies to buy food, to professional grant writing; from data-entry, to joining our corporate Board of Directors – we ask you to volunteer to you ability!


What you need to know

Is that Thursday’s Child has a very small office. (We could really use a bigger one, but that is one large volunteer project...). Our reputation among our clients is excellent because we highly value and jealously guard our clients’ confidentiality.

Translation : for those who may wish to volunteer at the office, discretion is not only polite, it is mandatory. We maintain a strict Privacy Policy. Clients discuss deeply personal issues with Staff; as space is limited here, we must limit the amount and times that volunteers can be physically at the office. Confidentiality Agreements are discussed, agreed upon, signed and witnessed; including staff and volunteers. Making public our clients’ medical records is illegal and subject to fines and/or jail. This office operates under strict adherence to HIPAA confidentiality. What is said in the rooms stays in the rooms.

Thankyou for sharing your knowledge and your time; ‘Thursday’s Child has far to go’...the journey is made easier with your help!
