TACL is a registered charity governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that are representatives of the community we serve.
We currently receive funding from Community Living BC, Ministry for Children and Families and Employment Programs of BC.
As a non-profit service provider, we are striving for ways to add value and excellence to our programs beyond our funded capacity, ultimately improving the lives and experiences of the people we support, some of whom are the community’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged members. TACL has been working extensively to develop alternate funding sources to augment program funds in order to optimize our support for the individuals and families we serve. Donations and fund raised dollars help offset costs.
