For the past one hundred years, Alexandra Neighbourhood House has been hard at work helping to build community – one individual at a time. From our origins as a “fresh air camp” for orphans from Vancouver, we have been focused on creating opportunities for neighbours to gather, grow, and build a spirit of community.
We want YOU to be a part of this unfolding story, by supporting our work through active membership in Alexandra Neighbourhood House. Your membership is not only a tangible sign of your support for community engagement and development, but it is also a sign of your support for the neighbourhood house movement in Metro Vancouver. We are part of a network of place-based agencies striving to build safe, inclusive communities where people have a sense of belonging, and the knowledge that we all can make a difference in our own lives, our neighbourhoods, and our communities.
Your membership helps us to provide programs and maintain our facilities. In return, you are eligible for priority registration and/or reduced rates on some of our programs and services; subscription to our quarterly newsletter; and participation in our annual general meeting – where you can have a voice in planning priorities for the future.
