Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House is an innovative, dynamic non-profit organization that works to empower our Vancouver Eastside community through a wide-range of community programs and services.
We invite your involvement and support in Creating Compassionate Children and a Caring Community
Imagine a neighbourhood where all children feel safe, seen, cared for and encouraged.
Imagine growing up among adults and institutions where the values of kindness, compassion, and respect are the foundation for all relationships.
Lets get together and talk about:
WHAT CAN PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES DO TO ENCOURAGE COMPASSION, COOPERATION AND CONFIDENCE IN CHILDREN?
The project is about learning and understanding from each other by sharing stories and experiences.
It’s about asking the questions:
- How can we create more compassionate, cooperative and confident children in the Frog Hollow Neighbourhood?
- Was there a time in your childhood when someone said or did something that had the greatest impact on your ability to be compassionate, cooperative and/or confident?
- Was there a time when you had the greatest impact on developing the compassion, cooperation and/or confidence of someone who was younger than you?
- How can we dream together to build a better community?
We want to hear about it.

Katherine this is lovely. What a wonderful chance to share stories about caring and compassion.
One of my favorite quotes to remind me of this is from John Gray
“We each bring different gifts to this world. We each have different work to do. Our lives are enriched when we can celebrate these differences rather than resent, resist and reject them. As we get more secure in who we are, we get more compassionate toward others. ”
It would be wonderful if people could write down things when they see someone showing compassion or doing things to help people.
