The Therapeutic Volunteer Program (TVP) is part of a broader therapeutic work program established in the mid 80's. TVP was created to offer persons living with a mental illness the opportunity to volunteer in their community. It provides an opportunity to engage in a rehabilitative process through participation.

TVP assists people in developing pre-employment skills and increased self-confidence in the pursuit of greater independence.

Some funds are available to offset costs incurred by participants.
