The Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion (BACI) has dedicated over 53 years to supporting children, youth and adults with developmental disabilities in becoming fully participating members of the Burnaby community, and in pursuing their interests and dreams.
BACI provides a broad range of programs and services including infant development, child care, adult day programs, supported residential facilities, skills development and advocacy to over 800 individuals with disabilities and their families.
At our 4 inclusive child care centers, children with disabilities attend with other children from their neighborhoods.
Older youth participate in teen transitions programs, and are being supported and encouraged as they grow into adults and become contributing members of the community. The 17 supported housing complexes that we operate in Burnaby enable over 200 adults with disabilities to live more independent and fulfilling lives.
While the world has changed a lot over the past 50 years, there is still a long way to go when it comes to people with disabilities being accepted as valuable contributors to our society and welcome members of our community.
We cannot be successful alone in trying to advocate for positive change. The work we do depends on the generous support of individuals, businesses, service organizations and foundations that provide grants, make donations, give gifts-in-kind and volunteer their time.
Please join us as we build a more inclusive and caring community.
