The Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation of Chatham-Kent received a $25,000 donation from Erieau Wind LP and East Lake St Clair Wind LP owned in partnership and operated by ENGIE Canada Inc. towards the Butterfly Building Campaign. The funds will directly support the Audiology Waiting Room and Family Meeting Room in the new facility when built.
“We recognize that the Children’s Treatment Centre has been assisting local families for over 70 years, and we’re honoured to have the opportunity to lend our support to such a worthwhile organization,” said Brooke Watson, Site Administrator for ENGIE Canada Inc. ”We recognize the importance of the Butterfly Building in our community and the impact it will have on assisting children now, and in the future, in reaching their full potential.”
Due to the growing demand for specialized therapy for children with special needs in Chatham-Kent, the Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent (CTC-CK) is building a larger, more accessible facility to better accommodate the growing caseload. The Butterfly Building Campaign will build a new 50,000 sq. ft. facility on McNaughton Ave. in Chatham. Since building the current facility 34 years ago, the CTC-CK has grown from serving 224 in 1984 to now serving 3,200 children and youth in 2018- that’s over a 1000% increase in caseload. By 2020, the CTC-CK will serve 4,500 clients- which is 1 in 5 Chatham-Kent children.
