Greenwood Neighbourhood Place was
formed in 2000 by a group of people who had a vision to create an
organization that would provide services and programming to our
community. We are a non-profit society, governed by a dedicated
volunteer Board of Directors. All decisions are made by the Board of Directors at monthly meetings using a financial, ethical, and fundamental framework. The
Executive Director is in charge of implementing and assuring day to day
activities are within the parameters set out by the board. Our organization receives funding and mandates through
grant writing, fundraising, partnership agreements and service contracts. Over the years the Society has grown and overcome many
obstacles. In 2013, GNP obtained registered charity status with the CRA - allowing us to expand the scope of our service delivery.
