Since 1959 Reach Child and Youth Development Society has been providing programs and child development and therapy services to special needs children and their families in Delta, Surrey and Langley, B.C. Reach provides a variety of programs and services designed to meet the needs of children to ensure their optimum development. Ladner Rotary has had a long relationship with Ladner-based Reach, formerly at its location near Boundary Bay Airport, as one of the first sponsors of the $5.7 million Lois E. Jackson Kinsmen Centre for Children adjacent to Memorial Park, and as sponsors of the Ladner Rotary Splash Park next door, both partially or equally sponsored by the City of Delta.
Every year over 1,000 children and their families benefit from the services. Core funding is received from the Ministry of Children and Family Development, BC Gaming Commission and the City of Delta. REACH is a member of the BC Association for Child Development and Intervention. Reach Executive Director Renie D’Aquila and Development Manager Kristin Bibbs presented to Ladner Rotary on April 26, 2022.
