Crabtree Corner is unlike any other community in Metro Vancouver. It houses a range of programs and services under one roof to help marginalized women and families living in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside feel safer and less isolated, be healthier and more empowered to make positive choices.
From transitional housing for expecting and new mothers with substance use issues to emergency child care, a community kitchen and violence prevention, Crabtree meets women and families where they’re at, providing them with the support to move forward in life.
