Enhance West Van at Work
Enhance West Van is a registered charitable society that provides direct stewardship and raises funds to enhance programs and services that improve people's lives in our community. In close partnership with the District of West Vancouver, Enhance West Van prioritizes personal and community health for the people of West Vancouver.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Enhance West Van has been able to leverage fundraising dollars, donor gifts and grants to deliver food security for youth and families, as well as supporting virtual programs and services that have been providing essential community connection for people in the community during these isolating times.

Movement Therapy is an innovative approach to working with children and youth with physical and cognitive disabilities. A partnership with the West Vancouver School District, the program recognizes the connection between motor skill development and readiness for acquisition of other skills. There are two Movement Therapy programs: one in gymnastics and another in aquatics.
