The Harrow Neighbourhood House (formerly Bay Riders Community Centre) was first established in 2007.  The mission is: to connect, inspire and belong.  A steering committee was formed comprising Committee of Management, volunteer and community representatives and Centre staff.  The Harrow Neighbourhood House sub committee now oversees the governance of the program, meeting quarterly and reporting back to the HBNC Committee of Management.  The program relies on volunteer input, donations, grants and annual funding from DHHS.  The Harrow Neighbourhood House (HNH) programs are conducted from the Harrow Bush Nursing Centre.  The HNH plays an important role in providing activities to the township of Harrow and also for the needs of a district rural community of approximately 500 people.  The areas of focus are:
