The Properties Family Hub Society (PFHS) contributes to positive human and economic development by offering multi-generational, flexible community health and education programs for families, seniors, singles and children residing in and near the British Properties. The hub creates meaningful connections among local residents to foster a culture of active, engaged citizens through partnerships with local community groups.

PFHS is located at Chartwell Elementary school and offers a range of recreational, language and community programming for all age groups, along with an onsite pre-school. Independent non-profit service providers operate through the centre from across the North Shore in cooperation with West Vancouver Schools.
