Making a difference in people’s lives

An unwavering commitment to give back to the community.

Hazel is a Peel Region retiree but her passion to serve the community and love for her organization inspires her to volunteer her time as a crisis responder.

Victim Services of Peel regularly receives referrals from Peel Police and community agencies. This is where Hazel steps in as a friendly voice to provide support and comfort to those who have suffered traumatic experiences like domestic abuse or the sudden death of a loved one.

She approaches each case with compassion and empathy to make sure that those in need feel heard and supported. Her commitment to making a difference in people's lives is truly admirable.

My Dad always taught us that in any community that you live, you should always give back. And this was my reason for volunteering in the first place.

— Hazel, Admin Assistant, Peel Housing Corporation
