A history of care and compassion

Our History

Members from various Mennonite Brethren Churches in British Columbia met in 1959 to organize the Tabor Home Society. With the help of government funding, a facility was constructed in 1960 that could accommodate 39 people.

New additions were added in 1963 and in 1972, providing a total of 118 beds for the Tabor Home. In 1987, the Tabor Manor, a 38-unit apartment building for Independent Living was constructed. Tabor Court Assisted Living Facility opened in 2006. In 2017, Tabor Home purchased Valhaven, which provides 26 additional beds. 

At present, there are eleven participating Mennonite Brethren churches, whose members are also members of the Tabor Home Society. Each participating congregation has the ability to nominate a member to sit on the Board; larger churches may nominate two members. The Board Nominations Committee recommends members to be appointed to the Board. The Board is responsible for the oversight of all aspects of the Society.
