Stories of Change
Mid-Main Community Health Centre
The process began with conversations, with Vancity Community Foundation staff, about how the Centre might begin to address its real estate challenge.
Catalyst Community Developments
No money changed hands. A contract was signed to acquire 31 new units of below market rental housing in the City of Richmond, BC. And all of the players received what they wanted in the ultimate win-win-win scenario for non-profit housing in this province.
Surrey Homelessness and Housing Society
In September 2017, a once-notorious establishment in Surrey, where sirens had rung out daily and women were profoundly exploited, underwent an incredible transformation with support from the Surrey Homelessness and Housing Society, which provided a $75,000 responsive grant for much-needed renovations.
