Faith & Spirituality Based

  • Jacob’s Well – A faith based non-profit located in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. We seek mutually transformative friendship with those on the margins of society and equip others to do the same in their own context.
  • Living Room: Faith-Based Mood Disorder Support – Living Room offers a safe place in a Christian setting for people with depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorders to meet and find out they’re not alone. It is a community of people who want to make God part of their lives and a source of healing, while recognizing the medical basis for their disorder.
  • More Than A Roof – Our faith serves as an inexhaustible spiritual resource and motivation to provide affordable housing for people regardless of their race, religion, age, cultural background or physical capabilities.
  • Sanctuary: Mental Health Ministries – Founded by Dr. Sharon Smith and Caroline Penhale in 2011. We work alongside churches to: create awareness of mental illness – improve understanding of the mental health recovery journey – facilitate caring activities to meet the needs of people living with mental illness and their families
  • Stand and Be Counted – A positive outcome to a sixty-six year struggle with schizophrenia.
