ABOUT US

The Helping House provides wholistic, culturally-integrated primary care for Indigenous clients and families. We are a team of interdisciplinary clinicians, including family physicians, a naturopath, nurse practitioners, a traditional Elder, and others, and strive to serve the Tsleil-Waututh Nation peoples by way of medical oversight, health and wellness services, and cultural healing.

Known as the People of the Inlet, the Tsleil-Waututh have lived on the unceded lands of the Burrard Inlet since time immemorial. Entrusted by their ancestors as stewards of the land, water, and air, the Tsleil-Waututh draw on the spirituality and wisdom of their traditional healers and knowledge keepers to fulfill this trust and thereby support the health of their families and communities at large.
