Donate to support youth and your gift will be doubled!

May 18, 2017 | News

There is an exciting new Province-wide initiative taking shape for our youth. Foundry is a province-wide network of youth centres for those youth (ages 12-24) seeking mental health and substance abuse services as well as primary and social services.

The new centres will be located in Kelowna, Campbell River, Abbotsford, North Shore and Prince George and will be modeled in part on the Granville Youth Health Centre in Vancouver, which is a project of St. Paul’s Inner City Youth Program. Why the 12-24 demographic? It is during those early years that 75% of mental illness and substance use begins. Providing a safe, trusted place for youth to access the care they need, before it is too late, is imperative.

A reminder that when you give to Foundry, your donation is doubled! Robert L. Conconi Foundation will match all donations made to Foundry until May 31st, 2017 and up to $500,000. Donations can be made at helpstpauls.com/supportyouth.
