SVNH pioneered services in South Vancouver's Fraserview area as the Fraserview Area Society until Nov. 1, 1977 when it joined Association of Neighbourhood Houses of British Columbia. After 26 years we have become a gathering place and service hub for more than 4500 community members each year. In addition to developing a comprehensive collection of community services, we have developed an important role as a centre for volunteerism. We currently have more than 300 volunteers helping in all aspects of the organization.
SVNH reached an important milestone in 2003 by completing the construction of our new three-storey facility. We have been settling into the larger space and developing an expanded service hub for South Vancouver. We have been working with seniors' groups to develop a seniors' centre within the new facility and now house the South Vancouver Seniors' Network and the South Vancouver Seniors' Council. Other new services include: Hello World Out-of-School care; Building Blocks, a partnership with MOSAIC to provide an outreach program for isolated, new moms; a domestic violence outreach worker and a comprehensive multicultural family support program. Two Ministry of Children and Family Development social workers are providing intensive family support services from our site. We also continue to provide the services which we have always provided for children, youth, families, seniors as well as various settlement and language services for newcomers to our community.
We have other goals for the coming year. We are also increasing community development activities and building strong community partnerships in South Vancouver to enhance services for youth, families and seniors. Sunset and the Fraserlands are the highest priority areas for new services.
