If you would enjoy getting to know and support a family from a different culture, being a sponsor is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you. The sponsorship group works closely together so they form a close bond with each other, and with the family.  There is no more rewarding work than watching families become secure and safe through their own hard work, perseverance, determination, courage, and the support of the Stratford community. Being a member of a sponsorship group is challenging and very rewarding work.


If you have any of the following, consider becoming a sponsor:

  •  Enjoyment of children

  • Access to housing

  • Ability to accompany people to appointments

  • Thrifty shopping skills

  • Knowledge of the education system

  • Financial record keeping and reporting skills

  • Knowledge of community resources

  • Skill in gathering furniture and household goods


The ideal size for a sponsorship group is around 10 members.

Volunteer to be part of a sponsorship group, or form your own sponsorship group.
