Our Executive Team

Hello from Jocelyne Hamel, Executive Director

Jocelyne Hamel, Rudy North (North Growth Foundation) and George Jolly (Honorary Community Board member)

Welcome to the new online home for Mount Pleasant Neigbhourhood House. For more than 40 years, we have provided a place to call home for neighbours from 40+ countries and many First Nations, an abundance of first languages, and all generations.

Our House is a welcoming place along the East Broadway corridor where everyone is welcome to come in for a cup of coffee, and to socialize in our living room. We take pride in offering programs that help everyone from newcomers to longtime residents make the most of life in East Vancouver.

We so grateful to our many community partners, donors and sponsors for helping to make our House a home for people from all walks of life.

Our work embodies placemaking and community development, by providing the supports people need to grow in leadership within our community. I invite you to join us in connection, celebration, engagement and leadership as you discover all our House has to offer.

Sincerely,
Jocelyne Hamel
