Community Programs

Safe Harbour

Safe Harbour is a BC-wide program that creates an environment where all members of our community feel welcomed and safe.  Since 2006, South Vancouver Neighbourhood House (SVNH) has been both a Safe Harbour Community Organizer and a Safe Harbour site.  Local Safe Harbour networks provide a resource to local businesses and agencies to be better prepared to serve an increasingly diverse staff and clientele. Being a Community Organizer means that SVNH is recruiting and training local businesses on an ongoing basis to become Safe Harbour sites.  If you ever feel you have been treated unfairly or discriminated against, you can find temporary refuge in one of the Safe Harbour sites.  Look for the Safe Harbour decal to find local Safe Harbour sites!
