Interested in joining our board?

The Board of Directors of Family Services of Greater Vancouver is a governance board committed to supporting families and individuals in the Greater Vancouver community. We seek Board members who represent a diversity of backgrounds and experiences, and we are particularly interested in welcoming members of Indigenous communities. As Family Services relies heavily on philanthropy to fund our programs and services, Directors are asked to support fund development efforts both personally and within their networks.

If you are interested in bringing your proven governance experience and commitment to community to the Family Services Board of Directors, we’d be happy to hear from you.
