Resources on COVID-19

Please visit our COVID-19 Resources page for information to help non-profits, charities, volunteer programs and volunteers adapt and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.


VM's Non-Profit Drop-In Centre

Our Non-Profit Drop-In Centre is a free space available for non-profits, charities and grassroots organizations to work, research, network and collaborate. Our goal is to provide a place for organizations and individuals to use and access services that support and build the capacity of the Non-Profit Sector in Manitoba. Unfortunately due to on-going COVID-19 restrictions the VM Non-Profit Drop-In Centre is currently closed.

Non-Profits looking for resources, training, and/or support can email info@volunteermanitoba.ca!


Community Information & Referral

Information and Referral is the art, science and practice of bringing people and services together.

When people need to know where and how to access a service, it can be difficult to know where to start. These services range broadly from housing and senior resources, all the way to information on what to do during wildfires and natural disasters. I & R Specialists work as community curators and navigators to connect up-to-date information to those in need.

Every day, thousands of people get help quickly, conveniently and free of charge because of I & R services.


211 Manitoba

211 Manitoba is a searchable database of government, health, and social services that are available across the province. It supports both a website at www.mb.211.ca, and now also a call centre. Just dial 2-1-1 and speak with a knowledgeable community navigator who will connect anybody in Manitoba with the right community or social resource even if they don't know where to start, and in 150 languages. 211 Manitoba also makes it easy for service providers and first responders to direct others to the right resource.

On the website, services are grouped together into categories that include food and clothing, housing and homelessness, health, mental health, employment, newcomers, children and parenting, and youth.

211 Manitoba is a partnership between United Way Winnipeg and Volunteer Manitoba. Development is further enhanced by a province-wide advisory committee, the Province of Manitoba, the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, United Ways in Manitoba, 211 Canada, and our funding partners and donors.
