Virginia Park Community Centre Logo

Our Centre has been in operation since July 17, 1987, and was opened by The Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation. The main focus of the Virginia Park Community Centre was, and continues to be, to provide Social, Educational, Recreational as well as Career Development programs and services for the residents of Virginia Park. Program development is based on the needs of Tenants living in the 202 NLHC units of the Virginia Park area, with programs and services available for everyone from prenatal to senior citizens.

Purpose

The purpose of the Centres are as follows:

To encourage the involvement of Tenants in their Housing projects through the use of programs and activities implemented through the community Centre.

To create a positive atmosphere, community spirit, and co-operation.

To help develop a better social environment by providing recreational, educational and social programs, as well as training and referrals.

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying. Lisa Shannon, A Thousand Sisters: My Journey into the Worst Place on Earth to Be a Woman
