TDCSS is in Partnership with Foundry to bring health and social services to youth in Terrace and the surrounding area.

The approach Foundry takes to supporting youth with mental health and substance misuse has been proven throughout BC.

You have an opportunity to support the creation of a purpose-built centre that will have an impact on Terrace for generations to come – making our community stronger.

We’re hoping to raise two million dollars over the next 2 years to complete this project and make a real impact on our youth in Terrace.

Whatever you can give – monthly or as a one-time donation, will show your support for your community and change lives for the better.

Your donation will be processed safely and securely through Canada Helps – Canada’s largest and most trusted platform.

If you’re donating more than $10,000, please reach out to TDCSS Donation Manager, where we can discuss recognition opportunities.

Our young people are full of promise and potential, but they face challenges to their wellness.

Developed by youth, for youth

Accessing help can be confusing and time-consuming. Youth must walk through multiple doors and tell their story over and over, before finally accessing the help they seek.

They need a place to go where they can feel safe and find the help they need, when they need it.

When you come to our new Foundry centre, someone will be there to listen and connect you with appropriate services.

We bring together practitioners and service providers from across disciplines, including primary care, substance use, mental health, social services and peer advisors. They’re not only practicing together, but they’re using the same model of engagement.
