Home Away From Home
Home Away From Home

Honour House is a refuge, a “home away from home” for members of our Canadian Armed Forces, Veterans, Emergency Services Personnel and their families to stay, completely free of charge, while they are receiving medical care and treatment in the Metro Vancouver area.

These brave individuals, along with their families, sacrifice so much on a daily basis to protect our freedom and our everyday way of life. Honour House allows us the opportunity to show them that we care and how much we appreciate all that they do for us.

About Honour House
Over 14,000 nights of accommodation donated
Annual cost to run one room at Honour House is $10,000
Over 500 volunteers have helped make a difference
