“Having a space in which I don't have to keep my guard up all the time is liberating, and truly enhances and completes their intention of helping youth find independence and empowerment in their community.”
Foundry centres enable young people 12-24 to access mental health and substance use support, primary care, peer support and social services from a single place.
Hosted by Terrace & District Community Services Society (TDCSS) , Foundry Terrace will bring together partner organizations that will address the health and wellness needs of young people aged 12 to 24 and their families.
