Skookum Food + Coffee is on the move!
You’ve probably watched the construction of the Pacific Centre for Wellbeing at 324 Goldstream Ave since it began in 2016. We are thrilled to be coming up to one year in this new centre, which has doubled our space for child therapy rooms and affordable counselling, and created a welcoming and healing atmosphere for our community.
The next phase of development is to bring Skookum Food + Coffee home to the Centre for Wellbeing!
Skookum Skills is a free 12-week training program for youth (between the ages of 16-22) to build skills and enhance their confidence through a well-supported on-the-job work experience program. The training program includes barista skills, customer service, culinary skills, food preparation, Food Safe and First Aid. And, you wouldn't believe how delicious their food is! Prior to moving day, Skookum is open to serve you lunch Mondays to Thursdays at its current location at 345 Wale Rd.
Pacific Centre Family Services is now celebrating 50 years of delivering high quality child, youth, adult and family services. We serve 1700 adults and children from across the CRD each year, providing a range of counselling and community support including: work with individuals addressing family violence; youth counselling through outreach and email; family and couples counselling; and in collaboration with local police, we provide a youth gang prevention program.
With the projection that the West Shore will double its population in the next decade, the Pacific Centre team is planning now to increase our capacity to serve this incredible growing community.
Watch for Skookum Food + Coffee to open at the Pacific Centre for Wellbing! And we will keep you informed about the Grand Opening.....hopefully early in 2019!
