Asante Centre Team Members

The Asante Centre is very proud of the wonderful team we have working with us, each of whom plays a critical roll in helping us reach the FASD Society for BC's vision for compassionate, knowledgeable communities that work together to prevent FASD and support individuals with FASD or other brain based disabilities and their families to reach their full potential.

The Centre continually strives to be a client and family-centred organization, where all people are treated with respect and dignity.  Each member of the team brings compassion, knowledge and experience to their work.
