Supporting North Island youth & families in the bright future they deserve!
FOUNDRY PORT HARDY
North Island Crisis and Counselling Centre Society, the North Island Youth and Family Foundation, and our MANY community partners are thrilled to be bringing Foundry to Port Hardy.
We are currently building a centre on Market Street in downtown Port Hardy/Gwa'dzi!
Foundry offers free and confidential support for young people ages 12 to 24 – this includes mental health care, substance use services, physical & sexual healthcare, youth and family peer supports, and social services – both online and in-person in communities across BC.
About Foundry Port Hardy Development
Foundry Port Hardy has two phases.
Phase One, 2023: Interim Foundry Port Hardy - A plan for immediate service delivery
First, we have built an interim service space to help youth and families access services in the community RIGHT NOW. The interim Foundry Port Hardy is now offering services, located at #2 - 7053 Market Street .
The interim Foundry Port Hardy is roughly 2000 square feet of a beautifully purpose-built space designed by local youth and families. This build was made possible by the contributions of North Island Crisis and Counselling Centre Society, Foundry BC and their Provincial Partners, the Children's Health Foundation of Vancouver Island, Lemare Group and many other donors, funders and community volunteers.
Phase Two: A community health and wellness centre facilitated by North Island Crisis and Counselling Centre Society.
There is a long term community-centred plan being developed by North Island Crisis and Counselling Centre Society and partners to build a community centre for health and wellness that will house Foundry Port Hardy and other health services, and serve generations of youth and families to come.
We have been donated a semi-oceanfront piece of land, and are working through the complexities of this undertaking. Please stay tuned to this website for more information, or
