PHS is excited to share with you our new website. We hope you find everything you're looking for - and more - check back often for updates, news and highlights about the work we do to support the community we serve.
Pigeon Park Savings is a unique collaboration between Vancity credit union and PHS. It provides access to basic financial services to people living on low incomes in the Downtown Eastside. Pigeon Park is more than a credit union branch. Its low barrier strategy often starts with essential supports such as securing identification for members. PPS services allow members to control their finances, receive advice, and take steps to become financially stable, without relying on predatory lenders. Approximately 4,000 members use PPS every month (some multiple times in a day or week, to manage their funds), where they are treated with respect and dignity, and have access to an ethical alternative to cashing assistance cheques with SRO landlords or through private cheque cashers.
January 15, 2021, we will be moving to 346 East Hastings. Pigeon Park Savings’ (PPS) current location is being redeveloped as an Indigenous-led community and affordable housing project. We have been working with Vancity and BC Housing to secure this new temporary location to stay close to the members we serve. More updates as they come!
