The holiday season celebrates the ideals of love and compassion, often symbolized through the innocence of a child. But imagine that child cowering in fear as someone approaches, and leaves behind unimaginable pain.
These are the youth who later in life develop depression, anxiety, and addiction issues as a result of childhood trauma and abuse.
Dan’s Legacy’s sixteen-week intervention program includes Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MCBT), healthy diet, exercise and life-skills to help these youth overcome the trauma of their past.
We deliver our programs in collaboration with our community partners Aunt Leah’s Place, the FOCUS Foundation, and Kwikwetlem First Nation, as well as through private sessions with individual clients. In the past three years alone we have helped 150 youth move on to live productive and fulfilling lives.
This holiday season, please give to help provide critical counselling support to some of the Lower Mainland’s most vulnerable citizens.Donate now
