Based in Kelowna, British Columbia, The Bridge Youth & Family Services Society is a non-profit, charitable organization that since 1969 has been actively supporting families and individuals who experience poverty, substance misuse, family conflict, homelessness, mental illness, sexual exploitation, abuse and trauma.
As an accredited agency, we achieve and maintain the highest international standards of professional practice and are the largest provider of publicly funded substance use treatment and recovery services in the Central Okanagan. Our current substance use services include Adult Residential Treatment, Adult and Youth Withdrawal Management (Detox), Adult Supported Recovery Housing, Youth Outreach, and Street Outreach through the Mobile Overdose Prevention Unit.
It is with this confidence borne of experience that we present this Case for Support. With your assistance, we can build an Okanagan Youth Recovery House to help our children and youth overcome an increasingly dangerous dependence on illicit drugs.
The Bridge Youth & Family Services Society is appealing to the community to help build a life-saving support for youth struggling with addiction.
