Kyndred supports people with developmental disabilities and their families and friends through four core service areas:

 

Community Inclusion:

Community Inclusion includes a range of daytime support services funded primarily through service contracts from CLBC. As of 2024, Kyndred offers seven different community inclusion programs at sites in Tsawwassen, Ladner, North Delta and Surrey. Each program offers unique activities tailored to the unique needs and desires of the program participants. Some programs cater to people learning to become more independent in their community, while others offer a more structured environment. Community Inclusion also includes a year-round calendar of recreational, art and life-skills activities and a self-advocacy group, funded by donations from grants and donations from community.  


Employment Services:

Kyndred works with job seekers to identify their skills, preferences and abilities and partner with local businesses to determine how to best meet their staffing and business needs. In addition to customized employment for adults, Kyndred has been working to develop programming designed to support youth in transition. Kyndred offers the “Leading Employment and Achieving Possibilities (LEAP)” project in the summer, with an aim to support youth transitioning from high school to learn skills in group and one-to-one settings geared toward each student’s employment goals.


Family Services:

Our respite program gives temporary relief to family members caring for a loved one in their home. Kyndred also operates the Delta Family Alliance Network, which delivers information, networking opportunities, training, advocacy and peer-based support to families in transition.


Inclusive Living Services:

Kyndred maintains community-based living options adapted to individual needs which are supported by trained and dedicated care providers. Inclusive Living options include independent living, home sharing and staffed homes.


Once a service has been selected, and annually thereafter, Kyndred works with the person receiving service, their family and other members of their personal network to develop a Personal Life Plan (PLP). The PLP reflects the person’s goals and desired lifestyle and serves as the benchmark for ongoing monitoring of how well Kyndred and its services are responding to individual needs and aspirations. Members of the personal network are encouraged to express their concerns and wishes for the well-being of their loved one in the care of Kyndred.

It is the belief of Kyndred that all persons with developmental disabilities should be afforded the same rights, opportunities and privileges as any citizen. Everyone has the same rights regardless of ethnicity, gender, origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability or family composition. Click here to view Rights Statement.
