Burnaby treatment home for women celebrates 50 years

Charlford House is a 15-bed residential treatment home for women located in North Burnaby. Our mission is to provide a safe, healthy, and caring environment in which to experience recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction.

On October 26, this charitable Society will have been saving and transforming lives for 50 years. Since our humble beginnings in 1970, we’ve been helping women rebuild, offering a continuum of care that ensures they can count on us long after they leave Charlford House.

As 2020 is our 50th year, we had a variety of activities and fundraising events planned. Due to COVID-19, we had to cancel them. However, we were still able to find some creative ways to acknowledge the milestone of our 50th Anniversary, including our 50th Anniversary Golf Fundraiser and 50 Thousand Dollar/50th Anniversary Matching Gift Campaign.

In the next few weeks, we’ll be running a special campaign, including heartwarming stories from Charlford House alumnae and articles about the important work we do.

Despite the challenges that a pandemic and an opioid crisis brought about this year, Charlford House remains strong and prepared to serve women for the next 50 years and beyond. We celebrate with awe, the resilience of the human spirit.

We are grateful for the support we’ve received in the past and hope we can rely on the community’s continued support for years to come. https://www.charlfordhouse.ca/donate
