The Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation of Chatham-Kent, works to raise community awareness and funds for the Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent (CTC-CK).
For over 70 years, the Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent has provided quality care and therapy to children from birth through age 21, who have physical, developmental, or communication challenges.

These programs include:
Registered Social Workers work with children, youth and their families to build social skills, promote positive self-esteem and help with the transition into adulthood, including pursuing postsecondary education, independent living, and finding employment or volunteer opportunities.
Therapeutic Recreation Services at the CTC-CK provides recreational opportunities for children with special needs to develop life-long skills and knowledge in the areas of recreation and leisure. Provides year-long sport and recreation opportunities, including pool programming, Challenger baseball, sledge hockey, adapted skating, dance, gymnastics and sailing.
Music Therapy helps develop a child’s attention span, communication, motor and social skills through singing, playing instruments, listening and expressive movements. Music becomes a great motivator, addressing goals by offering an alternative form of therapy.
