There are two offices for OCSV located in Parksville and Qualicum Beach. Normal visiting office hours are Monday to Friday from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. but due to COVID and a lack of volunteers, the offices may only be open in the mornings and you would be wise to call ahead an insure someone is actually there.
The volunteers are there to greet the public by assisting them with their inquiries incorporating a number of programs for example: Keeping In Touch (KIT), Medical Alert Kits (Makpaks), Citizens on Patrol, Speed Watch, Block Watch (BW), Bicycle Registration, Child Safety Car Seat Seminars, Child Identification Cards, and Senior Programs to name a few.
The morning volunteer conducts phone calls to a list of clients between 9:00 and 10:00 am checking on how they are, how their night was and ensuring they are getting on with their day. Other office duties may include answering telephone inquiries, basic clerical and computer functions. A log is monitored for phone calls and visitors for record keeping purposes. We have 2 volunteers on weekends and holidays to perform the KIT Calls between 9:00 and 10:00 am. Many of the office volunteers are also Leads for various OCSV Programs by preparing work schedules and organizing the volunteers.
You can reach the QB Office by calling (250)752-2949 or the Parksville Office number is (250)954-2223 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers check the calls and emails on a daily basis.
