John Howard Society
Giving back to our community
The Nanaimo Region of the John Howard Society strives to address problems facing too many people: homelessness, addictions, mental health challenges, and incarceration. Each of these represents barriers to transitioning to a “normal life” and that’s what makes the work of the Nanaimo Region of the John Howard Society so important.
Proceeds from the Nanaimo Boat Show will be used to provide services and programmes that help to keep a roof over the heads of the chronically and episodically homeless people, address addictions effectively, and with compassion, provide a new start for youthful mistakes so they start to travel along a better path in life, and assist with job and life skills.
The Nanaimo Boat Show is proud to be a fundraising event for the John Howard Society. As a show that gives back to the community, your participation and attendance helps us raise funds and draw attenditon to the important work of this amazing non-profit, charitable organization.
