Neighbourhood House Week May 5-11
Every May, we celebrate Neighbourhood Houses—and the people within them—with Neighbourhood House Week. Discover what your neighbourhood house has to offer.
May 5 - 11 is Neighbourhood House Week in Metro Vancouver. Through thirteen agencies and over fifty sites, we are part of a place-based movement seeking to engage with individuals and groups living in our neighbourhoods. Our goal is to strengthen communities through social inclusion, with a special focus on those who identify as marginalized and vulnerable. In this way, we seek to inspire positive social change; and to make the communities where we live – and the people who call them home – stronger.
The signature event of the week will be an Open House on Tuesday May 7, from 3:30 to 5:30 in the Dining Hall and Centennial Plaza at Camp A. The event will include wine/cheese/appies and kid-friendly comestibles; a kid's play zone, and a musician or musicians. Join with us in celebrating what makes neighbourhood houses special!
