Our History

The McSheffrey Resource Centre was established in 1983 by Pius Tenth Parish. Ownership of the centre was later transferred to Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation (NLHC). Located at Brophy Place in St. John’s, it serves 151-social housing units owned and operated by NLHC, with programs that reach over 150 families and their children in the area. In 1991, a constitution was developed and a Board of Directors was formed. Since the development of this constitution, the community centre has made tremendous progress toward its vision, providing support and services to all residents, thus strengthening families and the community.

Our Philosophy

The McSheffrey Resource Centre is founded on community pride and aims to inspire residents to play an active role in planning, governing, administering and evaluating programs and activities. This process is a crucial part of the community’s development and sustainability. Programs offered through the centre contribute to the community development process that will provide community members with the opportunity to be involved in work, volunteer and mentoring roles at the grass roots level.

Our mandate is to provide access and equal opportunity for community members to participate in social, health, recreational and educational programs and services.
