At Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, we have been making Mount Pleasant a better place to live for over three decades. We believe in our neighbourhood and in the ability and the right of its members to enhance their lives. Working together we are a stronger, healthier neighbourhood.

The History of MPNH

 

Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House (MPNH) is an integral part of the diverse, vibrant, and most multicultural neighbourhood in Vancouver. Our mandate is to make our neighbourhood a better place to live and we have been connecting neighbours ever since.

 

 

We began serving the community in 1976 with a youth leadership program that we ran from the basement of a local church, and added our second program, free income tax clinics, from a mobile trailer in 1977. Later that year, we moved to our first storefront building in the 500 block of East Broadway.

 

 

Finally, in 1995, we set up house in  the spacious building we currently occupy at the busy corner of Broadway and Prince Albert. Our dedicated and engaged staff provide programs and services for more than 3,000 people annually, from nearly 40 countries of origin. We work with a wide range of funders, community partners, as well as a strong volunteer base to offer community-oriented events andactivities that meet the needs of the neighbourhood’s always changing population.
