We believe a strong, caring community is our shared responsibility. We are changing lives together.

Family Services of the North Shore is a non-profit, community-based agency.
For over 60 years, we have provided counselling, support, education, and volunteer engagement for families and individuals. Our services are available to all residents of the North Shore regardless of race, gender, religion, culture, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or physical ability. We serve the City of North Vancouver, the District of North Vancouver, the District of West Vancouver, the Village of Lions Bay, and the Bowen Island Municipality. When we are asked to serve other communities, we are happy to expand our reach.
