For over 40 years, Oak Bay Volunteer Services (OBVS) has been providing one-to-one direct services to the residents of Oak Bay. Serving the young to the young at heart, we provide a variety of free services to help maintain our clients’ connection to community and assist with a variety of everyday activities to help maintain independent living, and for our senior clients, age in place. All services are delivered by our team of dedicated and passionate volunteers.
OBVS assists anyone in need within the boundaries of Oak Bay, and works to support the emotional, social, financial and general well-being of residents. Our services incorporate elements of companionship through walks and visits, minor home maintenance, income tax assistance for low income residents, and transportation assistance to important medical appointments, food hamper pickup, etc. From driving to gardening, our trusted volunteers provide assistance while offering a listening ear and a friendly smile.
