The Good Neighbours Awards is an annual event hosted by the Association of Neighbourhood Houses of British Columbia (ANHBC). It’s an event that celebrates those wonderful people who who have made amazing contributions to the Neighbourhood Houses in their Vancouver communities.

The night was a lot of fun where both staff and volunteers got together and cheered and showed their support for the the Award recipients, of which there were many!

Our own Jennie Yuen and Crystal Chow were honored with awards for the Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House as well as Books for Me.
