About Us

The John Howard Society of North Island provides services to youth, children, adults, and families with diverse needs.

For more than 30 years, The John Howard Society has been serving the community justice and social services needs of northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Our locations include office and residential programs, but our work also takes us into schools, homes and other parts of the communities. We have a holistic approach, recognizing that safer, healthier communities are created through the combines and diverse efforts of citizens, organizations and governments. We work cooperatively with a broad spectrum of community agencies and committees, while also maintaining involvement in provincial and national organizations that seek to address the social needs of Canadians.
