LET'S BUILD BETTER COMMUNITIES

 

Our events help bring us together to raise funds to support participants in programs and services that rely on donations and fundraising. Let's work together to help people with disabilities live with dignity, freedom and joy. Our events are open to anyone.

 

BUILDING BETTER COMMUNITIES LUNCHEON - SEPTEMBER 25, 2024

 

Our 2024 luncheon is a fundraiser in support of the North Shore Disability Resource Centre's Information & Advocacy Program. This program is a valuable resource for information about programs and services for people with disabilities, their caregivers and families. This program is a vital part of the North Shore Disability Resource Centre and our community. Often the first point of contact for families and caregivers, this program does not receive any direct funding from government organizations. We invite you to attend our luncheon and help us raise funds to support the Information & Advocacy Program.

United Way member agency

The NSDRC was started by a group of families in 1976. In the years since, we have worked for a "Community for All" by developing and providing community housing, infant development programs, youth groups, community-based services, and information and advocacy.

We are grateful for the opportunity to work, live and play on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
