"The Burnaby Task Force On Homelessness provides information to residents to raise their awareness of homelessness in Burnaby. The Task Force recognizes that information written in English does not reach the many Burnaby residents for whom English is not their first language. Burnaby Neighborhood House graciously agreed to translate a new Burnaby Task Force On Homelessness brochure into Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Serbian/Croatian and Arabic. Thanks to the Multi-lingual Translation/Interpretation Service, we will, for the first time, be able to provide information and connect with non- English- speaking residents. We are extremely grateful for this helpful service."
"I have two sons whom have never been to daycare, but when they started preschool, they fit in very well. I think this is because I have often taken them to family drop in program in the past. The program included free play, crafts and circle time. It helped my sons develop social skills, promote school readiness and encouraged me to engage in their learning. Also I was given the chance to make new friends, share ideas and acquire parenting resources. I appreciated the program manager Ms Maheen advised me take the ECE course; after I graduated I had the chance to work for family drop in program."
"My son, Diyako is really enjoying the program now. He comes home each day and trying to sing the songs he is learning at preschool. He is very happy with his teacher Kasha and Brigit is wonderful too. They are very respectful and trying to get the kids attention. I also appreciate the program and happy that Diyako is enjoying his preschool."
“I am please to recommend Burnaby Neighbourhood house to be one of the best places to network with other people from different backgrounds as well as to volunteer for the people who need help on taxation. I volunteered for the tax clinic program in year 2011, and I had developed technical skills in taxation through helping out other people’s tax returns, and asking questions to the supervisor, Abdul! At the same time, I had worked as a team with other volunteer members, and we were able to help others and meet their demands on time as the team and this was a proud achievement. I would certainly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to work in a similar position and who wants to build a resume for a great career.”
"The program has been great and very helpful for the development of my son's social skill, I really appreciate your hard work and extra attention to Wallace."
"Being a newcomer in 2008, I started volunteering for BNH in the Translation/Interpretation program and later as Receptionist/Office Assistant. I didn’t know before the concept of a “Neighbourhood House”; I was impressed by all the programs and activities ran by the organization and their contribution to our community in Burnaby. During the 3 years I actively volunteered, I always felt welcomed, supported, and truly appreciated by all the staff. I went there to help, but actually BNH helped me more. I met new people, made friends, gained confidence, developed new skills and networking connections. Finally I landed a job I love, and I’m currently working as a Spanish Instructor. SBNH is the best organization to volunteer for, and you will always have a special place in my heart!!"
