In Surrey, we are contracted to provide 12,053 service units and provided 13,093.75. In total, Special Services for Children and Families served 220 clients this fiscal year. Our summer program was able to provide 1,529 extra hours in day camps and activities thanks to a small team of dedicated summer students. Our emphasis continues to be that we have a lasting impact on the families that we serve by ensuring that the goals our clients achieve get carried through to their day-to-day lives. Families are involved in many elements of programming to allow them to observe their child in the program, and also to network with other families who are also involved.
