Giving monies to Honour House - a place where Canadian Forces, First Responders and their families stay while receiving and recovering from medical care - seemed like the honourable thing to do for the North Vancouver RCMP Auxiliaries.

The North Vancouver RCMP Auxiliaries, who are volunteers, unanimously decided to donate their $500.00 social fund monies to Honour House which is located in New Westminster. On March 28, 2017 two North Vancouver Auxiliary Constables, attended Honour House and presented a cheque to General Manager Craig Longstaff and volunteer staff.

Our men and women in uniform put their lives on the line, keeping us and the ones we love safe from harm, each and every day, said Craig Longstaff. The very least that we can do is offer those who are so tirelessly dedicated to helping others some support when they need help.

Honour House is a fully renovated heritage home with 10 private bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom. The house has a large shared kitchen, living room, a media room, sun rooms and many other common spaces. The house is fully modernized and wheelchair accessible and is set in its own extensive and maintained grounds. To learn more visit the Honour House website.

Honour House receives no direct funding and raises all of its operating costs through donations and fundraising. Almost all of the work needed to keep Honour House running is carried out by a team of volunteers and a board of directors.
