Happy Holidays from the
Child Development Foundation of BC and
Sophie’s Place Child Advocacy Centre
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support in 2014 as we provided services and support to over 2,700 children. None of this would be possible without you .
The year 2014 was an amazing one for The Centre for Child Development and Sophie’s Place Child Advocacy Centre. Thanks to our donors, sponsors and volunteers, our Phase 1 Renovation and Expansion Capital Campaign was completed on time and under budget.
Your passion and commitment to our cause keeps us moving forward and we know our community will step up as always as we continue to raise funds to cover the $1.7 MILLION dollar cost of Phase 1 and as we move forward with Phase 2 of our Renovation and Expansion Capital Campaign.
In 2015 too, we will count on our donors, our sponsors, our volunteers and the entire community to work together to support us in our mission to help children with special needs reach their potential.
We wish you a Happy New Year and many blessings in the New Year.
The Centre has been providing services for children with special needs and their families for 60 years.
The Centre provides specialized pediatric medical rehabilitation services and supports to 2,400 children with special needs and their families through 30,000 service sessions per year in Delta, Surrey, South Surrey, White Rock, Langley and other areas of the Lower Mainland. While we are able to serve 2,400 children each year, as many as 25,000 South Fraser children and youth may have SOME FORM of developmental disability and 3,000 may have SEVERE disabilities.
We are a “one-stop shop” for children with special needs and their families with specialized paediatric psychologists, family service and parent support workers, Fetal Alcohol Disorder Syndrome key workers, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, physiotherapists, early childhood educators, supported child development consultants and teachers, recreation specialists, specialized equipment technicians, a dietician and a doctor specializing in developmental paediatrics.
Sophie’s Place, a child advocacy centre, is a new program under our umbrella.
'SAFEGUARDING OUR KIDS'
RENOVATION AND EXPANSION
The Centre for Child Development’s Phase 1 $1.7 Million Renovation and Expansion Campaign was launched on November 2nd, 2013.
Our population has changed and so has our business. That is why we have embarked on this bold plan to position The Centre for Child Development for the future by constructing and renovating to achieve three objectives:
- To provide more efficient, compassionate care to more children with special needs from 0 to 19 in Surrey, Langley, Delta and White Rock
- To dedicate the entire second level to Sophie’s Place Child Advocacy Centre as a safe haven for children who have been abused mentally, physically and sexually in Surrey by bringing as many services under one roof to reduce the re-victimization of the children.
- To realize significant savings in the maintenance and energy costs, freeing up revenue to put towards addressing the increasing number of children who need The Centre’s services.
