Neighbourhood Houses

neighbourhood-houses-fw.jpgNeighbourhood Houses are the heartbeat of our community, and we’re so lucky in Vancouver East to have four of the ten in Metro Van: Kiwassa Neighbourhood House, Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House, Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, and Downtown Eastside Neighbourhood House. Van East is also home to the Association of BC Neighbourhood Houses. Today I rose in the House of Commons to call on the federal government to provide stable, long-term funding to neighbourhood houses. This, in turn, will help people connect and engage with one another, participate in civic life and, together, foster a sense of belonging.
