Thursday, February 1st, the Sertoma Foundation of Canada presented the Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation with a cheque for $250,000 in support of their Butterfly Building Campaign.
The Children’s Treatment Centre provides services to 1 in 9 children and youth in Chatham-Kent, and is expected to serve 1 in 5 by 2019. The CTC-CK’s Butterfly Building Campaign will support building a larger, state-of-the-art facility that will better accommodate the growing caseload.
“The Sertoma Foundation of Canada helped fund the CTC’s current building’s Audiology wing, and we wanted to carry on the support of this program to the future building to meet the needs and services of our community” stated Tammy Craeymeersch, President of the Sertoma Foundation of Canada.
Since receiving funding for the existing building in 1984, the Centre has grown from serving 237 clients to now serving over 3,091.
The Sertoma Foundation has provided significant, annual support to the CTC-CK’s Audiology and Speech Therapy programs for the past 5 years. The Children’s Treatment Centre and Foundation are extremely excited about the Sertoma Foundation of Canada’s continued support of the Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation, and commitment to helping the children and youth in Chatham-Kent, of all abilities, reach their full potential.
