A Kind Way Home - Volunteer Application
This form is for volunteers who are interested in the "A Kind Way Home" community (by and for) walk home program. This program is made possible by Alterna Savings community grant program (https://www.alterna.ca/AboutUs/Community/CommunityInvestments/HelpingOurCommunities/CommunityGrants/)!


Here at Kind, we saw the need for a free, community-based program that addressed the concerns of folks of marginalized identities within the Greater Ottawa Area. Therefore, we developed this program to provide folks with the opportunity to arrive at their destination in general safety. Heightened discomfort at night is contributed to by:
- Lower visual ability due to lack of light;
- Race, age, height, disability, orientation, gender or perceived gender;
- History of victimization; and/or
- A poor relationship with police and/or community services.

It's important to educate, challenge, and transforms the structures and norms that make it difficult or impossible for people to feel safe getting to their destination, especially at night. It's also important for people to have the option of not having to go alone.

A longtime and long-term goal of Kind is to create and help sustain communities of care and all the different ways those can look.
