The Kitimat Child Development Centre Association (KCDCA) is a non-profit organization that began operating in the District of Kitimat in 1974. The Centre came into being because a group of parents wanted a variety of services for their children in one central place. This was supported by their pediatrician and together they formed our society. Over the years the Kitimat Child Development Centre- A Family Resource Centre has evolved into a fully inclusive, family centered, community driven organization. Initially, the Centre provided specialized services to children who were challenged physically, intellectually, socially and/or emotionally. Our services broadened over the years to include youth programs, programs focusing on prevention and support for parents, adult support services, housing support, immigration and newcomer to Kitimat support services.
