Come help us celebrate

25 years at our

Hastings-Sunrise location

Why shouldn’t a 68 year-old celebrate their 25 year-old body?  Kiwassa Neighbourhood House has been a place for people of all ages, cultures and walks of life to make friends, find services and discover what they have to offer community life in East Van since 1949. On Thursday, September 21st from 3-8,  we’re celebrating our 25 years at our Hastings-Sunrise location with an open house, and launch of This Neighbourhood Life with Roundhouse Radio.  It’s free fun for the whole family.
