Building Community

The Foundry Youth, Family and Community Center is the result of countless volunteer hours refurbishing an old building for community use. However, it is less about the work-in-progress restoration of a hundred-year old facility and more about creating community for the love of community.

"We believe that families and individuals can be built up through positive communication, connection and care."

The project has not received any government assistance or grant money. It is purely a labour of love with a vision to create an open, welcoming and fun environment - a space that inspires growth and grace - where people of all ages and backgrounds can come to celebrate and support one another.

The Foundry will provide the community of Onoway space to connect for meetings, recreation, concerts, celebrations, workshops and more - all within a relaxed cafe setting.
