My first tour of the Tree House brought my first glimpse of reality of what Semiahmoo House Society provides for members of our community. Every corner of the building was buzzing with activity. I was amazed at how everyone was included without regard to their ability; nobody was off to the side alone. With additional exposure to activities and facilities supported by the Society, “Inclusion” wasn’t just activity-based, it is at the core of the Society. The people who look to SHS for many of the services are active members of our community, they just need a little help.
