More Than A Roof Mennonite Housing Society
1515 Charles Street, Suite 100, Vancouver, British Columbia

Our focus on being "More Than A Roof" captures in a simple phrase the very essence of our society's Vision and Mission. Sometimes it means helping a young single mom cope with the intense pressures of poverty and parenthood. Sometimes it means bringing dignity, care and friendship to someone who lives with the terrors of a mental illness. It could be an unhesitating welcome to a refugee family fleeing brutal oppression and hardship of a third world country, or accepting those who are homeless and hungry.
