Living Environment
During the VFC’s opening hours, you can use the community room. Decorated by the volunteers on the living environment committee, the community room has all sorts of information on the activities and programs that the VFC and its partners offer. Whether you drop by with your children or by yourself, it is the ideal place to chat with others, meet new people, eat or relax. There is even a play area for kids.
