We are honoured to be the fundraising partner for Encompass Support Services's new youth initiative, Foundry Langley

Did you know that while one in five youth report experiencing mental illness or substance use problems, fewer than 25 per cent receive appropriate services?

Each year, an estimated 1,000 Langley youth need immediate access to critical services. Many suffer in silence.

So why are so many youth falling through the cracks? 

Despite services being available, youth are having trouble navigating the system. Wait lists and stigma also prevent youth from getting the services they need at the time they need it.

When help is hard to find youth languish, and hope begins to fade. But, with the right support, there is a solution. 

A Partnership for Youth Mental Health: Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation & Encompass Support Services Society

Encompass Support Services Society (a grassroots, non-profit agency that provides a wide range of community-based, enriching and essential programs and support services in Langley and Aldergrove) has approval to open and funding to operate a Foundry Centre in Langley.

Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation is helping Encompass raise funds in support of this much-needed service centre by spring 2022.
