Gordon Neighbourhood House

Gordon Neighbourhood House has served as a community hub in Vancouver’s West End since 1942.

We have a history of working alongside our friends and neighbours to facilitate connection, engagement and collaboration, while seizing opportunities for community development.

We work alongside community and sister organizations to offer programs that reflect the needs of our diverse community.

Mandate:
Gordon Neighbourhood House strives to ensure that the West End of Vancouver is a vibrant and active community, where everyone is empowered to play an active role in civil society.

Vision:
As a place-based community organization, we work alongside our community, sister organizations, local businesses and policy-makers to animate and support dynamic programs, services and initiatives that respond to the needs and dreams of the community.

We acknowledge that Gordon Neighbourhood House is located on unceded Indigenous land belonging to the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh (pronounced Squamish or Skohomish) & Tsleil-Waututh (pronounced: slay-wa-tooth, also known as Burrard) nations.

Unceded means that this land was never given as a gift, traded, surrendered, relinquished or handed over in any way. Today, most of what we refer to as British Columbia remains unceded sovereign Native lands.

At Gordon Neighbourhood House, we are committed to working towards better understanding how we can support Indigenous sovereignty.
