OUR HISTORY

OUR MANAGER

John started as the chairman of the board in 2010. He took over from May Greenslade the founder of Community House in 1994. Prior to becoming the chairman John served on the board for 5 years. John is passionate about the vision of Community House and it’s growth in a developing and growing community. After the earthquakes the Community House Trust was forced to move and re-evaluate their direction and in 2015 after being in temporary housing and lots of funding the trust purchased it’s own building. John was instrumental in this move and in growing the tenancy and now John has become Manager of this incredible facility.

MISSION STATEMENT

The centre was administered by volunteers but by 2002 the demand was such that a full time manager was appointed. In 2010 the resource centre was rebranded to Community House Mid Canterbury.
