Serving the communities of Abbotsford and Mission since 1988, IMPACT currently supports three main programs:
- Counselling aimed at addressing life challenges that have gotten tangled up in substance use for young people (under age 25) and their youth or adult supports (friends, siblings, parents, caregivers, teachers, youth workers).
- The youth-led, adult supported project, FLOH (Foster system, Life promotion, Opioid dialogue, Harm reduction/homelessness).
- Host organization for the Abbotsford Drug War Survivors, as well as for the new collaborative project, BEAP (Business Engagement Ambassador Project.

Next Parent/Caregiver Group starts October 2, 2019
We all want the young people in our lives to grow into healthy, happy adults. Helping them bridge from the dependency of childhood, into necessary experiments with independence in adolescence, and into a thriving balance of interdependence in adulthood is no small feat! Our hats are off to every adult who takes on this challenge and struggles with all of its dilemmas.
Parenting and caregiving, we think, is a bit like calculating an irrational number, like Pi. It would be nice if you could just do one calculation to get to the 1000th decimal. But, no, you have to do all 1000 calculations to get there! (Or, someone has apparently already worked that out with this formula: Pi = SUMk=0 to infinity 16-k [4/(8k+1) – 2/(8k+4) – 1/(8k+5) – 1/(8k+6)], but you get the point).
Join other parents/caregivers (including our parent co-facilitator) for a 5-week group of support and learning… with the acknowledgement that what we need to learn may not already be known. We may have to create and experiment with new knowledge to meet each person’s unique circumstances.
Contact [email protected] or 778-808-9031 to register for our Fall 2019 parent/caregiver group, or to learn more about our counselling and programs for adult supports.
