How You Can Help
You have the ability to help us change lives!
Please join our SASHA Family in empowering people with mental illness to live healthy and independent lives as valuable, contributing members of our community.
There are three ways that you can help:
We have many opportunities for volunteers! You could empower SASHA clients through helping with meal preparation, organizing meaningful daily activity, or spending time with individuals over a cup of coffee. Or maybe you are studying for a professional designation and would like to fulfil practicum requirements? We partner with the University of Lethbridge, Lethbridge College, Reeves College, and the University of Calgary to connect students to great practicum experiences. Or if leadership and governance is your thing, we are always searching for dedicated individuals to join our Board of Directors.
2. Donate or Host a Fundraiser
We gladly accept all donations to support SASHA programs. No amount is too small or unappreciated! Donors can state where they want their donation to go, or ask SASHA to use it where it is needed the most.
In addition to funding current SASHA programs, we are looking for donors to support more SASHA housing. The need in our community is great and too many people who need SASHA's help are on wait lists because we are out of space for them to live with us. We are thankful for donors who want to contribute funds to help us operate more homes.
Donations do not have to be only in dollars! SASHA operates the SASHA Store - a collection of basic household items available to individuals and families in need at no cost. Donations of gently used items to the store make an incredible difference to SASHA clients and others in need in emergency situations, or starting over.
Host a Fundraiser:
Fundraisers can be a fantastic way to support SASHA's work! If you have an idea for a SASHA fundraiser among friends, family or at your workplace, please contact us!
Please note: Donors who would like to remain anonymous can do so.
