Foundry Campbell River

Foundry is Campbell River's new youth health centre and is situated in John Howard’s 10th Avenue building.

As the lead agency, John Howard is working with government, community agencies, community partners, and donors, to bring together a variety of health and social services under one roof.  By working in partnership with young people and families, Foundry will transform the way we offer mental health, primary care, and social services to young people and their families. 

Instead of having to navigate an array of services themselves, and re-tell their story over and over, young people will be able to walk through one door and get the help they need.  The centre will be hosted by John Howard in partnership with Island Health (Mental Health and Substance Use, and Public Health), MCFD (Child and Youth Mental Health and Youth Services), School District #72, North Island Employment Foundations Society, Sasamans Society, Campbell River Family Services, Campbell River Community Literacy Association, Campbell River and District Division of Family Practice, Campbell River and District Association for Community Living, and the City of Campbell River-Parks and Recreation. 

There will be a Foundry centre in each regional health authority, as well as the prototype centre, the Granville Youth Health Centre, launched in downtown Vancouver in 2015. In addition to Campbell River, there will be new centres in Abbotsford, Kelowna, Prince George, and the North Shore (North and West Vancouver).

Foundry is funded by the BC Ministry of Health, philanthropic organizations, and donations.
