The North End Family Centre began as an idea of our Founder & Executive Director Kyle Mason. After seeing a lack of community-based services in the Luxton and St. John's sections of the North End, Kyle decided to meet with community members and leaders to determine what gaps in service existed. As a result, programs were created to meet needs in the community, rather than duplicating existing programs offered by other organizations and churches.
From September 2008 to January 2009, research and preliminary planning was conducted, followed by the first Board of Director's meeting in March 2009. Initial fundraising, awareness raising, and events occurred between March 2009 and August 2009. The lease for our first location (1322 Main) was signed in September 2009 and after six weeks of renovations we opened our doors to the community in late October 2009. In October 2015, our first location was closed in preperation of our second and much bigger location (1344 Main), which opened December, 2015.
The North End Family Centre is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Statement of Faith
We believe in God, the Father almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended into hell.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy universal Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
