LANGLEY—CUPE 403, representing nearly 900 Langley Municipal Workers, has shown significant support for the mental health and well-being of their community through a generous donation of $5000 to the Foundry Langley, an organization that will provide access to mental health and substance use support, primary care, peer support and social services for Langley children, youth, and families.
“Supporting youth in need through a culture of care is critical to keeping our community healthy and safe,” says Sara Manchester, President of CUPE 403. “Early intervention and connection with vital resources and community supports will change so many of our community members’ lives for the better.”
Foundry Langley is a centre that will bring together community members and partner organizations to offer free and accessible programs and activities. The centre is under development but will be open for service in the fall.
