BUILDING IS UNDERWAY
Long term, we aspire to build a purpose-built state of the art facility for as many as 16 young people to reside with us. To that end, we have begun the process of designing the building with a local architectural firm, based on the literature that shows us how intentional building design can positively influence health outcomes. And, a year ago we launched an ambitious and aggressive campaign to raise the money to make it a reality. We’ve committed $300,000 dollars of our internal resources to this enterprise to ensure every dollar raised from our donors is committed solely to bricks, mortar and treatment.
But given the ambition of that long-term plan, and the urgency of the immediate need, we’ve committed a house in Kelowna already owned by The Bridge to start Phase 1 of the project to begin caring for 6 of our most at risk young people . The funds we are raising now will make Phase 1 a reality.
