You have the power to influence a child's life through giving. Funds directly benefit children and youth with diverse abilities and their families in the Fraser Valley.
The Fraser Valley Child Development Centre (FVCDC) was founded in 1982 and is a fully accredited, registered charity governed by a volunteer board of directors. We provide opportunities and services which enhance the quality of life for children with diverse abilities and their families, supporting over 3,600 children and youth in the Fraser Valley per year.
The Child and Family Resource Program
Support is provided through four areas: Family Support - Family coaching (parenting/counselling), Loan Cupboard/Equipment and Family Access for barrier-free participation which includes support for families with barriers that affect their ability to access FVCDC programming or other child development specialty services. Support includes gas cards, bus tickets, cab fares and interpretation services provided through our family emergency fund.
