Foundry is a support service for young people ages 12-24.
We are forging a new, province-wide culture of care through the development of a network of centres and e-health services — co-created with our health and social service partners, young people and families in communities across British Columbia.
Foundry brings health and social services together in a single place to make it easier for young people to find the care, connection and support they need.
This line is primarily for transgender people experiencing a crisis. This includes people who may be struggling with their gender identity and are not sure that they are transgender. While our goal is to prevent self harm, we welcome the call of any transgender person in need. We will do our very best to connect them with services that can help them meet that need. If you are not sure whether you should call or not, then please call us.
Our hotline is staffed by the true experts on transgender experience, transgender people themselves.
