Help Support PHC Programs
With the help of over 200 volunteers and the generosity of donors, PHC has been able to make a difference in so many lives. Our programs and services have touched 1 in 7 Gabriola residents!
"I often say...we are a small rural organization working out of a shoebox, operating on a shoestring budget, doing big foot work."
- PHC Executive Director, Brenda Fowler
