We are excited to announce the newest community to join the Foundry network! Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows will be home to a Foundry centre, providing young people with integrated health and social services including primary care, mental health services, substance use supports, social services and peer support.

This announcement builds on the work of the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Local Action Team (LAT) and the development of the Youth Wellness Center. The LAT involved a mix of over 80 community organizations, professionals, youth and parents coming together to improve mental health and substance use services for young people and their families, and led to the development of the Youth Wellness Centre.

Now, as part of the Foundry network, the Youth Wellness Centre will transition into Foundry Ridge Meadows with a broader scope and enhanced services and supports to improve access to care for young people throughout the community. The next step will be to determine an appropriate location for the new centre.
