Kiwassa Neighbourhood House is a gathering place where people of all ages, cultures and walks of life can make friends, participate in programs, find resources, share ideas, and contribute to community life.

We are a grassroots volunteer-led non-profit organization. We provide a broad range of accessible, free and affordable programs for children, youth, families, seniors and adults, and volunteer and leadership opportunities in the northeast of  Vancouver.   Kiwassa values and appreciates diversity and we seek to include and reflect all who live here.

Check out our programs and opportunities, and drop on by. Our doors are open!

Kiwassa is open Monday – Thursday 8 am to 9 pm, Friday 8 am to 7 pm, and Saturday 9 am to 4 pm.
