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.

Better at Home provides seniors with assistance for simple non-medical day-to-day tasks so that they can continue to live independently in their own homes. Better at Home is funded by the Government of British Columbia, and managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland.
