Family Programs

South Vancouver Neighbourhood Houses's family programs promote the well-being of families. Today's parents face many work and family challenges that stretch them to the limit. You are not alone. Come visit, learn, and play at SVNH. Check this site periodically for new programs and services or contact us.

SVNH's Family Support Worker and Multicultural Family Workers can provide individual support, referrals and advocacy for families who are experiencing difficulties in their day-to-day lives. If you need help or just someone to talk to, please give us a call.
