community housing and inclusion program

The heart and soul of our work 
has always focused on ensuring 
people with disabilities can 
live and thrive in their own 
community.

 

Our Community Housing & Inclusion Program has been supporting individuality, choice, enrichment, independence and diversity in affordable, accessible, safe and secure community housing for more than 40 years. All of our homes have been purpose-built or renovated to accommodate wheelchair access, and are located in residential neighbourhoods throughout the North Shore.

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 residential services, 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.
