The Bridge adapted its services several weeks ago. We repurposed our Recovery and Addictions resources to best support the hospital and acute care needs in our community. We moved our groups to virtual platforms to help keep our families safe and well. We supported all but our most at risk participants at a distance, to ensure the safety of our staff and those who engage in our many programs. Planning is now well underway to begin the gradual transition to the recovery phase of the pandemic.

Ben Wasenius has a deep understanding of the role that community social services have in building strong societies. He credits this to his time living and working in Finland, during his teens and early 20’s. Inspired by the high level of emphasis on social development, it sparked Ben’s passion to be involved in community programming and building great places to live. Ben returned to Canada to complete his Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning at Ryerson University. After moving back to Kelowna where he was raised, Ben quickly joined the Board of Directors at The Bridge Youth and Family Services Society. Ben currently serves as Board Vice-President, Chairs the Board Development Committee, sits on the Board Succession Planning Task Force and is a member of the Finance Committee. Ben is happy spending his days in the amazing Okanagan and making it a better place to live, one program at a time. Ben has been a Director with The Bridge Youth and Family Services Society since 2006.
