Welcome to the John Howard Society of the Lower Mainland of BC
We assist people impacted by criminal justice so that they can reclaim their lives, making everyone safer.
We also offer support and housing to individuals with developmental disabilities who are at risk of homelessness or involvement in the criminal justice system, and who may have concurrent issues of mental health or addictions.
We are a non-profit charitable organization in Vancouver providing assistance with housing, life-skills, and community-based support with the goal of getting individuals to achieve greater independence and value their positive contributions to society. We advocate for just and humane punishment for crime and educate on the social, economic and personal costs of crime.
