Mission & Vision | PCLA Board | Partnerships

Pioneer Community Living Association (PCLA) is a not for profit mental health and substance use organization that provides innovative services and housing options to persons with mild to complex mental health symptoms. The focus is on high-quality, effective, integrated, client-directed and client centered services and support.

PCLA began as a pillar in the mental health services landscape in New Westminster and expanded into Burnaby over the past 30 years. In 1982, PCLA opened its first program, Pioneer House, a twenty-bed community residential facility. In 1992, the short-term emergency program CRESST was opened to meet an identified need in the community. CRESST was the first facility of its kind in B.C. and now serves up to 400 clients annually.

Over the past 30 years, PCLA has grown to seven programs providing a unique range of housing and rehabilitation options for persons diagnosed with a serious and persistent mental illness. PCLA has the capability to house and service 90 clients at any one time and employs 137 regular and casual employees.
