Due to the addition of new programs, caseload growth, strong demand and changing client needs, the Chatham-Kent Children’s Treatment Centre Kent (CTC-CK) is in need of a new expanded building. Local fundraising support has been strong and a location on McNaughton Ave. West has been chosen as the new site. Advocacy continues to obtain Ministry funding sooner in order to set a construction date.
As part of their 70th Anniversary Celebration, the Centre presented a vision of the future, with an unveiling of a 3D Concept Design as the next step of planning for a new building.
“CTC-CK is one of the oldest Children’s Treatment Centre’s in the province, and our existence is the result of a vision and hard work of past parents and supporters,” says Donna Litwin-Makey, Executive Director. “Our founders came together to make sure there was therapy and supports for children with special needs. Today, our Board is proud to oversee Centre growth and ensure services are in place in order to Celebrate Abilities and Develop Potential with children, youth and families across the community.”
An open house was held at the treatment centre on August 23, 2018 to celebrate the CTC-CK’s 70th Anniversary and welcome the public, clients and stakeholders to see a reflection of the past as well as the concept design reveal, Centre tours and an opportunity for input regarding the concept design.
