The Learning Disabilities Association of Chatham-Kent is a non profit charitable organization committed to helping individuals reach their full potential. Our mission is to provide leadership in learning disabilities advocacy, research, education and services and to advance the full participation of children, youth and adults with learning disabilities in today’s society.

We are affiliated with the Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario www.ldao.ca and the Learning Disabilities Association of Canada www.ldac-taac.ca

We are a United Way of Chatham Kent funded agency. www.uwock.ca

An additional source of funding that LDACK relies on is generated from Riverview Bingo in Chatham.

Dedicated individuals volunteer 1-2 times a month resulting in direct revenue to fund specific programs.

During the fiscal year of April 2017—March 2018, Bingo revenues totaled $8870.24!

We could use two more responsible, dedicated volunteers to volunteer once a month for two hours at a time volunteering at the Bingo Hall. You volunteer in teams of two and receive the required training! Please call our office today to inquire how you can help!
