The History of MPNH
Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House (MPNH) is an integral part of the diverse, vibrant, and most multicultural neighbourhood in
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.
