Our Roots

Our Roots

Delta Family Resource Centre began in 1981 as a demonstration project with five women from the community hired to create a network to connect isolated parents, provide information about services available in the community, and establish supports and friendships for both parents and children.

In 1985 the network incorporated as a non-profit organization, “Delta Child Care Network”.   Included community development, particularly in neighborhoods where few programs and services existed. The mid nineties introduced the provision of services to newcomers to Canada.

By 1999, the organization was providing services to over 29 language and cultural groups in four locations.

In 2001, the name changed to “Delta Family Resource Centre” and its mission statement refined to reflect the diversity and multicultural aspect of its clientele.
