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

For more than 50 years, The John Howard Society of North Island 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 combined 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.

The John Howard Society of North Island is a registered charity under # BN 10754 2524 RR0001
