We acknowledge that Foundry Sea to Sky resides on the unceded traditional territories of Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) people. Sea to Sky Community Services works throughout the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples, serving the Sea to Sky Corridor of Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and Lower Stl’atl’imx Nations (Lil’wat, Mt. Currie), Samahquam, Skatin, Xa’xtsa (Douglas) and N’Quatqua.
Who We Are
Hosted by the Sea to Sky Community Services, Foundry Sea to Sky unites multiple partner organizations that will address the health and wellness needs of young people aged 12 to 24 and their families who live in Squamish and surrounding area.
Foundry Sea to Sky will be located on the ground floor of the new 76-unit affordable housing complex on Buckley avenue. Foundry Sea to Sky will be 5,000 square feet of newly built space for free youth counselling, mental health services, and primary care along with a separate hang-out and recreational space that will be freely open to all youth. Recreational programs will run out of the hang out space and coordinated by Squamish Youth Centre staff.
