The Bridge Youth & Family Services has made the difficult decision to suspend all of its group activities for the time being. This includes our parenting and family programs, Naloxone training, and Etcetera – amongst others. Should any participants of our social support programs need our assistance during this time, please call us and we’d be most pleased to touch base with you by phone, text, email or – if possible – in-person. Call our main number at 250.763.0456 and ask to speak to anyone you’re familiar with. We are still here for you. All other programs of The Bridge are open for business and we look forward to serving you through our Family and/or our Recovery and Addictions services.
