Making a Difference at Home and Around the World

Speaking Up!

February 3, 2020

We are thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership between our family foundation and the newly formed, and now operational, Child Advocacy Centre (CAC)! 

As a family, we are so inspired and proud of where the CAC has come from, and where it is going. What started as a dream to help provide support for children who were the victims of abuse (physically, emotionally, and socially) with little resources has since evolved into a world class centre for advocacy, care, and multi-faceted treatment for those in need and at risk. It will undoubtedly have a tremendous impact in our community and help countless people who aren’t in a position to help themselves. 

In case you didn’t know, the CAC has been designed to accommodate a team of highly-skilled professionals who will be empowered to collaborate on cases, take actions that prevent re-victimization, and support the child’s long-term well-being, as well as non-offending caregivers. Our goal is to provide a centre of leadership, promoting excellence in child abuse services, research, training and education – a collective community response to protecting children from abuse.

Key services of the CAC will include but are not limited to:

  • Court Preparation
  • Case Coordination and Review
  • Counselling
  • Community Education
  • Professional Training for Social Workers, Medical Staff and Police
  • Forensic Child Interviews
  • Medical Evaluation

The CAC recently released this powerful video that really helps outline who they are, and most importantly, why they do what they do;
