It all began early in 1992 at a meeting of the Ladysmith Inter-Agency Liaison Committee, a group of representatives from the government mandated agencies formed in the early 1970’s to maximize cooperation among the agencies while minimizing the duplication of services.
“Enriching the lives of people in the community through advocacy, programs and partnerships.” Our vision is to be the centre of social change in Ladysmith.
In 1992 this group pooled some of their own money and decided to form a non-profit association to try to deal with these recurring situations. This became the foundation of the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association.
In 2011, the LRCA moved into the new building at 630 2nd Avenue. This property located where the old tennis courts once stood is owned by the Town of Ladysmith, came about as a result of a partnership between the Town, Ladysmith Resources Centre Association, Boys and Girls Club and the Ladysmith Seniors Society and is now part of what is called “Spirit Square”.
The LRCA continues to grow and has become an integral part of the Ladysmith Community. Anyone wishing a more detailed or photographic history of the Association can stop by the office and view the Associations photo album available through reception.
