A Welcoming Community

This has been a hard one for me.  I’ve thought long and hard and I’ve read other people’s stories.  Semiahmoo House to me and Manjeet is a home away from home.  Everyone is so welcoming of all, be you a participant, staff, or a visitor.  The joyous welcome that one receives sends a warm feeling through every bone in my body.  Sometimes I walk into that building and it’s hard to distinguish between the service receiver and the service provider.  Someone asked me the other day what particular disability a person that I knew had.  For the life of me I couldn’t remember.  We see people, not their disability.  I am so honoured to be a part of SHS because I believe there is some amazing things happening here.  I will always be indebted to you Doug for bringing me on board.  It will be hard, if not impossible, to get rid of me!!!

Semiahmoo House Society, a non-profit organization located in Surrey/White Rock, exists to provide quality services and supports to people with disabilities and their families in the community. The Semiahmoo Foundation, located in Surrey/White Rock, exists to fund, support and enhance the programs and services delivered by Semiahmoo House Society.
