About Our Group

Navigating life is already a challenge without the setbacks many of us face during this key stage of life. At Birchwood Timber Bay we believe every teen should have a chance to thrive; that’s why we provide relational, emotional, and spiritual support in fun and practical ways. If your teen needs someone to come alongside them as a friend and mentor we’re here. Timber Bay has been investing in the lives of youth since 1970.
