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.

Tributes concert raises over $21,000 for youth treatment centre

Tributes For Teens: Arrival and Dreams presented by Valley First raised $21,630 in support of building a youth treatment centre in the Okanagan.

The concert, hosted by Councillor Ryan Donn, treated attendees to the favourite songs of ABBA and Fleetwood Mac and a surprise performance by Donn and Leah West to open the evening at the Kelowna Community Theatre Friday night.

All proceeds from the event were donated to The Bridge Youth & Family Services’ Youth Recovery House campaign.

“The night was such a success. A tribute to our young people and a righteous cause that will ensure their health and well-being,” says Celine Thompson, executive director of The Bridge Youth & Family Services. “Valley First and Ryan Donn exemplify the compassion and leadership needed to elicit change in our community.”

The Bridge Youth & Family Services is raising funds to build a 16-bed, live-in treatment centre for youth aged 18 and under to heal and recover from addiction. There are fewer than 50 publicly funded treatment beds for youth in B.C. and none in the Interior for those under 17 years old. More information is available at

Thank you to event sponsors Valley First, Castanet, Black Press Media and Kelowna Tickets, and to WestJet, Spirit Ridge and Big White who donated the raffle prizes.
