Important Centre Information:
Foundry centres are now re-introducing in person services, but will continue to offer select services virtually – over the phone or video chat. Please call Foundry Vancouver-Granville at 604-806-9415 for the most up to date information on service availability.
The safety, health and well-being of our young people and their families, staff and our community partners is our top priority. We’ve taken a number of measures at Foundry centres to ensure we are aligned with BC Centre for Disease Control’s recommendations. A few of these measures include:
- Plexiglass barriers at reception desk and waiting areas seating being spread out to accommodate for physical distancing
- Staff members practicing physical distancing and being equipped with person protective equipment (PPE) including masks, gloves, etc.
- Adjusting service hours to decrease number of people in center at once
- Hand sanitizer or alcohol-based hand rub being available throughout the centre
- Thorough cleaning of all shared equipment (including Toolbox iPads) after each client and all other areas of centre cleaned multiple times throughout the day
- Resources available regarding COVID-19
From counselors to doctors, from occupational therapists to income assistance specialists, the skill and diversity of our team is the key to the centre’s success. Each team member uses their expertise and talents to connect a young person with the care, community resources, and fun activities they need to lead a healthy, fulfilling life.

Mental Health & Substance use Services
Our counsellors are available during drop-in hours to assist young people with their concerns. Counselling may lead to a referral for specialized service if the young person feels this would benefit them. These services are available Monday-Friday between 3:00pm-6:00pm.
Primary Care (Physical Health)
Primary care services are available virtually via telephone/video calls during regular drop in hours (1-5pm – last patient by 4:30). We are open Mondays to Fridays and closed on weekends and statutory holidays.
Please call 604 806 9415 if you would like to make a virtual appointment or to speak with a health care provider during the drop in hours. If the health care provider feels you need an in person assessment, they will book you an appointment.
Intensive Case Management
Our intensive case management team (ICM) accepts referrals for young people requiring more intensive and specialized mental health and substance use support. All young people receiving ICM services are connected with a case manager and psychiatrist specializing in youth/young adult mental health and substance use.
The ICM team members check-in with youth regularly on an out-reach basis to see what is going on in their life, develop care plans, and link them with the centre’s resources and community services to support their treatment and recovery goals.
Peer support workers with lived experience provide young people with help and support. They are available onsite during walk-in hours and can help young people on their path to wellness.
Our Income Assistance workers are able to help youth with their finances in a multitude of ways. These include supporting them with income assistance, disability applications or by explaining the many other services that young people may qualify for, such as employment training.
Please call ahead to find out when our income assistance worker is available or to book an appointment.
Foundry Vancouver Granville is partnered with Services to Adults with Developmental Disabilities (STADD), which provides the services of a STADD Navigator on-site. A STADD Navigator provides transition planning supports for young people ages 16 -24, who are eligible for Community Living BC (CLBC) services.
The Navigator works with the team at Foundry to support youth who want help in areas such as housing, employment, education, community inclusion, health and wellness, and other goal areas identified by the youth.
The Navigator supports young people in building a personalized care plan that is unique to them, along with co-ordinating a supportive team of government and community service providers to assist them in reaching their goals.
Group Support and Activities
Our team offers a variety of clinical groups, including:
- Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
The Psychosocial Rehabilitation Team also organizes and coordinates a wide range of social and recreational activities on site.
Foundry Works is a new supported employment and education program for youth who are interested in working, going to school, or completing a training program. Foundry Works helps youth to build the skills and experiences they need to achieve their goals. This program is available to BC youth between the ages of 15-24 years old, who are not currently employed or enrolled in any other employment program. Click here to learn more.
