A Home for Wellness

Vancouver Friends for Life welcomes people living in Vancouver City Centre and facing life challenges associated with HIV, Cancer, Hepatitis C and other illnesses to participate in specialized support programs. 

Most services take place in our amazing historic house in Vancouver's West End - The Diamond Center For Living. 


This beautiful facility is also available outside of service times for private use.  Learn more.  

Since our launch in 1993, Vancouver Friends For Life Society has welcomed countless client-members, volunteers and staff members through our doors. 


Here we share our stories about the impact that this Society has had on our health, well-being and quality of life.

There are many ways to help us continue to serve the needs of the community. 


Donate, volunteer, provide services as a health practitioner, or simply have fun attending a fundraiser.   Learn more.
