Richmond Centre for Disability wins Association of the Year
At the corner of No. 3 and Lansdowne roads, a small non-profit organization offers activities and programs that support inclusion and empowerment for people with disabilities.
“We’re 25 years strong. The RCD has been doing some terrific work,” said Vince Miele, chair of the Richmond Centre for Disability board. “We continue to provide programs and services to all kinds of people with various disabilities.”
Founded in 1985, the centre’s staff has grown from two to 20 and works hard in maintaining an exciting and interesting environment for its members.
“Thank you to the chamber, to the City of Richmond, (which) has been a terrific partner and ally for us over the past 25 years. We greatly appreciate all the support from everyone,” said Miele.
