Whole Way House - Downtown Eastside Community Programs
Whole Way House is a Vancouver-based charitable society. Our vision is to reach the people in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside by creating a safe and welcoming environment where we can build meaningful relationships and a community that instils worth, value and dignity.
We believe that when a person feels loved and valued, they are able to find purpose in life and be a part of something greater. We offer friendship and support to those who are often lonely, isolated, rejected and forgotten.
Our Mission is to:
1)- ReConnect with people by building meaningful relationships
2)- ReBuild a sense of community, belonging and purpose through education and training
3)- ReCenter around a meaningful and purposeful life through a three-phase, integrative clean-housing support system
As we grow our ReConnect and ReBuild phases, we offer programs like weekly Games Nights, Family Dinners, and Nutritious Smoothies. Every month we have a birthday party with cake (because you HAVE to have cake for your birthday), gifts and a personal card. The hip local stylists from Chop Shop in Gastown come by to keep us looking fresh and stylish and we hold special art days too. We also have a daily breakfast program run by the tenants who volunteer to wake up early and make the coffee and set out the bread and condiments for toast and we have a beautiful little garden for the residents to enjoy. Join us as we aim to provide positive relationships, community, support, and opportunities to feel sense of purpose through contributing and volunteering.
