Generation to Generation Society (Sanctuary)
Community & Non-Profit Organizations
The Generation to Generation Society operates both Sanctuary Pre-Teen Centre and Sanctuary House.
Sanctuary Pre-Teen Centre is a free program for pre-teen children in Trail BC. All children, aged 8 to 12, who need a safe place to go on weekdays, are welcomed regardless of the economic status of their families. As well as providing a fun and safe space with thoughtful programming, we provide healthy snacks and hot suppers every weekday. The Pre-Teen Centre has been open since September 1998. We have about 50 children visiting on an ongoing basis, with about 20-25 children coming each day and about 12-20 staying for supper each evening.
Sanctuary House offers short-term, low cost accommodations for patients and visitors to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital. Located in a private residential building, Sanctuary House has two fully furnished and equipped apartments for individuals or families.
