“Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House was the first place my family and I went to when we faced challenges, and even now after living here for five years, it still plays a key role in our life,” says Ghfran. 

For decades, neighbourhood houses across Metro Vancouver have been welcoming and comfortable spaces where all members of the community can take part in programs and develop deep connections with their neighbours. Everyone from youth to seniors, newcomers like Ghfran, to long-time residents can find a sense of belonging at their local neighbourhood house.
