Building For Children Together – Delta, B.C. – COMPLETED
The Building for Children Together project was a partnership between the Corporation of Delta, Reach Child and Youth Development Society and the Ladner Tsawwassen Kinsmen Club. The Corporation provided the land, valued at in excess of $1 million. The REACH Foundation raised $5.7 million to ensure completion of the new centre’s construction and it was completed in December 2017.
The Lois E. Jackson Kinsmen Centre for Children is 20,000 square feet, three storey structure, slab on grade building with surface parking.
THE NEW CENTRE PROVIDES
The new home base for Reach Child and Youth Development Society includes therapy and counseling rooms, youth program areas, specialized lending libraries and an inclusive preschool with an accessible playground.
An expanded events room for municipal, business and community use.
A club meeting space for the Kinsmen Club.
Space for other organizations in the community supporting children and youth with special needs.
THE NEW CENTRE IS:
A place of learning and belonging for families who have children with special needs.
A stepping-stone for children and youth to access other community resources.
A demonstration site and a centre of expertise for promoting inclusion and best practices in early intervention and behavior support.
Situated in the heart of the community along bus and walking routes, enabling accessibility and independence for families, and children and youth with special needs.
The building of the new centre provides a unique opportunity to develop an enhanced resource that will address the needs of the community and of children and youth now and into the future. Reach Foundation would not be at this milestone without our generous donors and sponsors. We are so very grateful!
