More families of children with special needs will have access to services that are more accessible with the opening of Reach Child and Youth Development Society’s new three-storey, 20,000-square-foot Lois E. Jackson Kinsmen Centre for Children, officially opened on February 24, 2018. Delta Foundation was among the many supporters of the project over seven years of fund-raising for the $5.7 million facility on 47th Avenue adjacent to the Ladner Pioneer Library in Ladner.

For the past 40 years Reach has operated from a now aging building which cannot expand to meet the needs of the growing community, in a remote location, off 72nd Street near the Boundary Bay Airport in East Ladner, with no nearby bus route.
