Sea to Sky Community Services hosts site tour of Foundry Sea to Sky building

A site tour and luncheon were hosted on Nov. 27 to showcase the project

Sea to Sky Community Services and community partners came together Saturday (Nov. 27) for a site tour of the new Foundry Sea to Sky building

Construction is well underway and the building, located at 38648 Buckley Avenue, is set to have a soft opening around June 2022, including the 76 affordable rental housing units above. 

The tour outlined the many services that will be available to the youth when the building opens. Some of the services include counselling, peer support and a youth hub area meant to be a safe place for youth to hang out. Additionally, there will be a washer and dryer, washroom with a shower and residential kitchen. The project took input from youth in Squamish for its design, colour scheme and amenities.

Additionally, Sea to Sky Community Services (SSCS) hosted a luncheon at Norman Rudy’s to celebrate and acknowledge an 80% reach of their funding goal. Currently, $1.7 million has been raised for the project and the ultimate goal is to reach $2.2 million, according to a news release.

Jaye Russell, executive director for SSCS, thanked and acknowledged the partners that have supported the project.

Attending the luncheon included representatives from the District, Squamish Nation, the Bosa Family Foundation, Foundry BC, the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District, the Foundry Youth Advisory Committee, Vancouver Coastal Health, 100 Women who Care, the Squamish Hospital Foundation, the Rotary Club of Squamish, and Divisions of Family Practice.

According to a news release, the next stage of fundraising is underway and will enable local groups to raise funds for the project. Along with this, the Bosa Family Foundation will match donations up to $50,000 on top of its previous donation of $200,000.
