Foundry: A Youth Health & Wellness Centre

From www.FOUNDRYBC.ca - Who We Are - Foundry’s vision is to transform how young people access health and social services throughout British Columbia.


Foundry is a province-wide network of integrated health and social service centres for young people ages 12-24. Foundry centres provide a one-stop-shop for young people to access mental health care, substance use services, primary care, social services and youth and family peer supports.


We provide safe, non-judgmental care, information and resources, and work to reach young people earlier – before health challenges become problematic. Foundry brings health and social services together in a single place to make it easier for young people to find the care, connection and support they need.


We believe young people should have a voice in their care and that finding the right support shouldn’t be difficult.


Foundry also represents community agencies, government, donors, youth and young adults, and families coming together to improve the wellness of BC’s young people.


Our network is made up of community-based health and social service centres and online tools and resources for young people ages 12-24 and their families. Foundry has engaged over 140 partners across the province of BC. The Foundry central office, hosted by Providence Health Care, leads the provincial initiative and supports the development of local centres. Each Foundry centre is operated by a lead agency that brings together local partners, service providers, young people and caregivers. Foundry’s online platform, foundrybc.ca, is powered by BC Children’s Hospital.


We provide safe, non-judgmental care, information and resources, and work to reach young people earlier – before health challenges become problematic. Foundry brings health and social services together in a single place to make it easier for young people to find the care, connection and support they need.


We are committed to working with our partners to change lives, communities and our systems, because young people are our future.


Foundry is a new approach to wellness services for young people.
