Community grants to support transitional youth program
Community Options has recently received two community grants – $11,160 from Telus and $8,000 from the VanCity Community Foundation. These funds will help transitioning youth and their families navigate the changes in programs, resources and financial assistance that are available once children reach the age of 18. The yearlong project will begin in February. The money will go toward extra program coordinator time to work directly with families on transition.
