The programs are primarily funded by the Ministry of Children and Family Development and are free of charge to families. PACE offers a range of services that support and promote the well being of children in a holistic and systemic way. By encouraging the development of social, emotional skills, cognitive and physical skills, the child’s resilience, coping mechanisms and sense of self are enhanced. All programs are available throughout Vancouver. The Outreach Support Service is also available to centres in Richmond.

PACE books
Some of the therapeutic books
used by PACE staff with children
and families.

“Books are a great resource for helping children identify and release their feelings. Reading stories that relate to a child’s life can offer them insight, an experience of being understood and not alone.”

Paul Gordon, staff member from 1992-2010
