Call 519-252-1171 Ext: 1262 or email

Volunteer with Ensemble 

Ensemble is a parent-directed resource for families caring for a child with a disability that provides support from birth through adulthood. The name, Ensemble, is French for “together” and was chosen for the strength and resiliency found in the connections built between families and within the community.

Ensemble inspires possibilities for children by promoting family leadership so that families thrive and become active members in the community.

Ensemble was founded in 2000 by two moms whose lives have been affected by their children’s diagnosis of a disability. These moms understood the importance of connecting to others as the first step in helping families cope with the challenges of raising a child with a disability.

We meet ONCE a month via telephone or Zoom at 7pm for approximately 1 hour. By joining our committee, you will be able to openly share experiences and make suggestions. These opinions will provide valuable family perspectives everyone will benefit from.

Please consider making your voice heard.
Contact us by email or phone.

Wheels of Hope Volunteer Driver – Canadian Cancer Society Windsor-Essex

As a Wheels of Hope driver, you will be responsible for: 

• Responding to requests for client rides from the Transportation Coordinator, ideally via email, and wherever possible being flexible with your schedule as busy days/times/periods change

• Confirm travel arrangements with client(s) by phone

• Offer minimal assistance to get clients in and out of the car (no lifting permitted)

• Put client safety first by following safe driving procedures and keeping your license and insurance details updated

• Adhere to all Canadian Cancer Society policies, procedures, standards and guidelines including client confidentiality, role boundaries and our 100% smoke free policy


You understand that cancer can change everything and that accessing critical programs and services creates a whole new level of community. You recognize that the Wheels of Hope program requires flexibility, as we respond to the continually changing schedules of current clients and other drivers.

You enjoy meeting a variety of people and have the patience to deal with the times you may be waiting for a client to finish treatment. You can represent CCS positively as you interact with members of the public and are a guest in facilities like Hospitals, Cancer Centres and Lodges.

You are ready to do your best to make a client’s ride to treatment one less thing they have to worry about, allowing them the space and focus to handle their journey in their own way.

You are comfortable using online tools, like email and our scheduling software. You have a valid  driver’s license with 3 or fewer demerit points and an acceptable driving record. You carry a minimum of $1M third party liability insurance on your 100% smoke-free vehicle and are willing to have a criminal records check and regular driver abstract checks completed.


As an organization we will provide you with training and support to prepare you for this important role. You will be supported by the Transportation Coordinator, who will be providing your driving schedule and be there to help you throughout your time on the road.

You will be part of the larger Wheels of Hope team, including over 1600 volunteer drivers and many staff who share your desire to help as many people as possible get to their treatments.


• This is an important leadership role. We ask that you dedicate at minimum a half day to one day weekly, although we are able to accommodate those able to give a few days a month or during particular times of the year (ie summer months, winter months).

• Your schedule will be provided three (3) days ahead of time and will depend on busy days/periods, your preferences and client demand. If you’re not getting as many rides as you’re available to take, we ask you to contact your Transportation Coordinator to discuss changing your availability.

• You are agreeing to initiate and respond with regular, consistent communication between the Transportation Coordinator, clients you are scheduled to drive and other partners including other Wheels of Hope drivers.

* As a volunteer, you are a representative and ambassador who promotes the mission and values of the organization.

  • At pre-arranged times, volunteers will shop at a grocery store in the area and then provide contactless delivery to the client’s place of residence. Grocery deliveries are limited to once a week at maximum.
  • Following drop-off, the client is to e-transfer the whole cost of groceries to the volunteer. Volunteers will be reimbursed by ASPIRE if they do not receive payment within a reasonable window after delivery.
