Stay tuned for our next Breakfast in 2019.

Corporate Social Responsibility

If you’re a home builder or a supporting trade in the community, you already know what it means to create lasting, meaningful change in people’s lives. After all, you build their homes – those warm, cherished places that individuals and families retreat to every day.

With your help NightShift reaches out to people who are struggling or don’t have a place to call “home”.

Through our nightly outreach and daily care programs, we are able to provide the community and hearth so many yearn for. Join our Home Builders’ Care program in partnership with the HAVAN (formerly Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association – GVHBA) and start building relationships that highlight your corporate social responsibility.  Let’s talk!

As part of our commitment to dialogue, we invite business leaders to connect over an informal breakfast at our Builders’ Breakfast Forum and hear speakers from the industry describe how the success of their business goes hand-in-hand with giving back to the community.
