Fernwood NRG is a social enterprising non-profit organization run by and for the residents of Fernwood, a neighbourhood in Victoria, BC.

Since 1979, our non-profit organization has provided child care and family programs, as well as offered recreational activities through the Fernwood Community Centre. In August 2005, we purchased the Cornerstone Building, and fourteen months later, we opened the Cornerstone Apartments, which provides affordable housing to four families. Soon after, we opened the Cornerstone Cafe, Fernwood’s living room. In 2008, we built a beautiful house on Yukon Street, the Park Place Apartments, creating affordable housing for six more families.

We could not have achieved what we have without our funders, supporters, and friends. Please consider making a donation, and you can help us to continue to create the neighbourhood we all wish we had grown up in.
