Deer Lodge Centre is an amazing place, made that way by the incredible people who live, work, and volunteer together. We have a wonderful group of volunteers who do everything from assisting with fundraising, to working in the gift shop, manning Chad’s Bar, or just being a bright and sunny spot in the lives of everyone they touch.
