Dan’s Legacy works primarily with youth who grew up in foster care, most of whom don’t have friends or family to turn to for support. Counselling, wrap-around programs and connecting youth to community are some of the ways Dan’s Legacy is closing the gap in mental health services to youth.
The organization goes directly to the youth wherever they are, they aim to have a no-wait list, and all of their services are free. They also partner with 15 other organizations across Metro Vancouver and Whistler that provide services to youth.
Leo-nominated Emcee Erin Cebula will host for a fun-filled evening of food, entertainment and community connections.
