The research component of this project has required of ongoing collaboration between HELP and the Infant Development Program (IDP) of BC. Some of the information was gathered through interviews conducted with parents of risk children who participated in the IDP program.
To view the steps that were involved in the recruiting and collecting of data for the IDP case studies, as well as the next phase of the case study component of SDPP, please read SDPP: The Plan for 2007-2008 IDP Case Studies.

As we stated previously, this website is mainly about the social inclusion of at risk children and their families project (also known as the Social Development Partnerships Program or SDPP). In early 2007 we presented an outline of the SDPP and gave our audience information on how to participate in our project.

We originally targeted communities in the Lower Mainland, (including Abbottsford, Burnaby, Chilliwack, Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge, Mission, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Pitt Meadows, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Richmond, Surrey, Vancouver, West Vancouver and White Rock). After more than 40 public presentations, the feedback we received encouraged us to expand the range of the Healthcare Locator. As of August 2009, it includes links for all five regions in BC and contacts for Aboriginal Health Units in each one of these regions.
