Founded as a charitable nonprofit society in 1957, the Children’s Foundation has been helping Vancouver’s vulnerable children and their families better their lives through its many programs and services for 60 years.
Services offered at the agency’s locations in Vancouver and Surrey, B.C. today include assessments for children with complex needs aged 6 to 12, counselling for families with children under 12, a therapeutic school day program, and an education transition centre for school-aged kids.
In addition, they offer parenting courses, family support and respite services, as well as foster care support.
In 2014-15, Children’s Foundation programs served close to 800 families in the community, providing over 8,000 hours of service to children and families at their Alderwood Family Development Centre alone.
