tattonrock Design & Build has committed $100,000 over a 10-year period to support Foundry Abbotsford, a soon to-be-open youth health and wellness centre.
 

Foundry Abbotsford will offer local youth help with everything from finding employment to mental wellness support.

 

At the centre, youth ages 12-24 will be able to access mental health care, substance use services, primary care, social services and youth and family peer supports all under one roof.  Foundry Abbotsford will have a focus on prevention and early intervention with the goal of reaching young people early. 


Stattonrock owners Dan and Randi Dueck wanted to be more involved in their local community and when they found out about
Foundry Abbotsford it was a 搉o brainer.


揙ur youth are our future and investing in the overall health of our young people is such an important job. As parents ourselves, we can sympathize with the struggles that some families go through when trying to navigate the current health system. With Foundry as a centralized support center, it will remove some of the barriers to getting help in a timely manner.


揥e were so encouraged by Stattonrock抯 donation and knowing that they see the potential to change the lives of youth. We hope other businesses will follow their example so youth can get the help they need, when they need it, said
Foundry Abbotsford project manager Leah Froese.


After almost a decade in business, the Duecks have found a new calling to use their home building and renovation business to create something bigger. In 2016, they also started supporting a village in Guatemala with a 10 year giving commitment.  揥e strongly believe in giving back to our local and global community in long-term sustainable ways so that the programs can plan for the future and make a lasting impact, said Dan Dueck.


揟hrough our existing youth health centre and other programs, we know that the need is out there and we can抰 wait to open the doors of
Foundry Abbotsford, said Simone Maassen, the manager of Youth Services at Abbotsford Community Services lead agency of Foundry Abbotsford.


揥e are honoured and proud to be able to be a part of this organization and we抮e excited for the commitment and investment Abbotsford is making to support their youth, said Randi Dueck.


Foundry Abbotsford is led by Abbotsford Community Services and includes 15 community partners. While the core funding for the project provided by a mixture of provincial support from the BC government, philanthropic contributions and grants,
Foundry Abbotsford is fundraising to ensure the unique needs of Abbotsford抯 youth and families are met, and is reaching out to local businesses and donors for support.
