The QUEST Centre Community Initiatives organization was developed in partnership with Human Resources and Skills Development Canada and the Thames Valley District School Board.  Opened in November 1999,  the Centre has become a vital part of the community by providing resources and services which meet the varying needs of the more than 10,000 residents in the communities of Glencoe, Appin, Alvinston, Bothwell, Newbury, West Lorne and Rodney as well as the surrounding rural areas.

Funding for the Centre is provided in a number of ways.  The Thames Valley District School Board provide partial funding and some community organizations provide additional support.  However, to reach our mandated and organizational goal of becoming financially self-sustaining the Centre also undertakes fundraising events or projects throughout the year. Community support is essential to the continued success of the Centre.
