Due to the flooding emergency in Fraser East, the Fraser Valley Child Development Centre is broadening its Family Emergency Fund to support FVCDC families affected by the flooding with necessities like grocery and gas cards, clothing, personal and medical supplies, and children's toys.  If you are an FVCDC client, and would like support, please take a moment to fill out our Family Needs Form or reach out to


Anyone moved to contribute can donate to our Family Emergency Fund (select Family Emergency Fund from the drop-down menu)


Please Note: FVCDC offices are open with limited staffing (based on travel restrictions and safety precautions). Reception is staffed in both Abbotsford and Chilliwack and clients are being supported virtually and in person (where safe to do so). Please reach out to your service provider on their cell phones if you have any questions.
