Land Acknowledgement

Located within the shared, unceded, ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. These nations are hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh sníchim speaking peoples. These territories are now home to many diverse First Nations, Métis and Inuit. Our work does not start and end with this land acknowledgement; it is one important action towards Reconciliation, honouring the land and Indigenous heritage, which dates back since time immemorial.

Services Available

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.

Primary Care - Physical Health

add

Primary care services are offered in person and virtually.  Youth can see a nurse, nurse practitioner or doctor with regard to physical health, sexual health, and opiate use disorders.

Mental Health & Substance Use

add

Walk in counselling is available Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

We offer a range of drop-in psychosocial rehabilitation (PSR) groups weekly and monthly.  PSR programming supports youth to develop life skills, connect with their peers, have fun in their community and manage challenges related to mental health and substance use.

Foundry Works and Education Program is a 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.

Intensive Case Management (ICM) is by referral only.  Our ICM team accepts referrals for young people (age 18-24) 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.

Social Services

add

A Community Integration Specialist (Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction) is onsite every Thursday afternoon to support youth with providing support related to income assistance and persons with disabilities funding.  Please call our centre to find out when our Community Integration Specialist is available or to book an appointment.

Peer Support

add

Peer support workers offer the perspective of lived experience with mental health and/or substance use challenges to connect with young people.  For inquiries related to peer support, please contact our centre.
