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.
The JHSLM Welcomes Mark Miller as our new Executive Director!
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the John Howard Society of the Lower Mainland of BC, I am delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Miller as our new Executive Director, effective August 17, 2015.
Please join us in welcoming Mark and congratulating him on his new position!
Mark brings a wealth of senior management and front line experience to the position, and has contributed significantly to the community through his many years of leadership experience at the YMCA of Northern BC, Prince George Airport Authority, and BC Corrections. Mark was previously the Executive Director of CHIMO Community Services, a dynamic charity which provides a broad range of programs and services to the community of Richmond. We have no doubt that Mark’s experience as a visionary leader in government, corporate, and not-for-profit organizations will assist him in continuing and expanding the innovative growth of our organization.
It is with great pleasure that we warmly welcome Mark to the John Howard Society to continue our important work of Improving Lives, One Person at a Time.
