Social Inclusion

Read Stories on Social Inclusion from Neighbourhood Houses in the Lower Mainland

Neighbourhood Houses are known as places to connect, volunteer, and become involved in the community. Many people do not realize the important work that neighbourhood houses do to help people feel a sense of belonging.  This is known as social inclusion, and is particularly important when community members are experiencing a challenge or barrier in their lives. When people feel socially isolated, they often experience negative impacts to their health and well-being. Our open doors and inclusive programs can make a tremendous difference and help people feel valued and motivated.

We are pleased to share some stories from people who have benefited from ANHBC neighbourhood houses through our collective work on social inclusion. Enjoy!
