Transform charities by transforming their buildings

A chapter of HeroWork Canada, HeroWork Greater Vancouver renovates charities serving vulnerable populations in the Lower Mainland of BC through BIG community events we call “Radical Renovations.”

Radical Renovations & Community Mobilization

Radical Renovations are a series of BIG community events, akin to an extreme makeover or modern-day barn raising. We organize and execute these events through the “art of community mobilization.” Typical projects have hundreds of volunteers and dozens of companies involved, bringing together people from all walks of life.

If you are looking for a “radical” way to experience community and make a BIG impact, get involved today! All skills welcome.


The Impact of Renewed Charities

Transforming charity buildings has a big impact. But we didn’t have the data to proved it. So, we partnered with the University of Victoria and the Victoria Foundation to analyze the social and economic impacts of charity infrastructure renewal.

See our new study for the results. The ripple effect is profound and continues for many years to come! 


Radical Renovation at Surrey Urban Mission

The “Cove” (part of the Surrey Urban Mission) is a space that houses 42 people, providing them with a wide range of services go transition into recovery and permanent housing. But it is also a unsightly for the neighbourhood and needs a transformation to better serve residents. Make BIG impact. Get involved!
