When a child or youth needs help leaving an abusive situation, we are here for them – not just for their immediate safety, but as part of an ongoing healing process.
Child Advocacy Centres (CACs) and Child Youth Advocacy Centres (CYACs) prioritize the needs of abused or neglected children. We provide assistance and a safe, comfortable environment to children, youth, and their families.
As a community, we need to better understand what child abuse is; education is the key to early prevention. Learn more about the issue, how to recognize the signs, ways to respond + report, and how to help prevent this from happening to a child in your life.
Our first forensic interview was conducted in December 2017, and in the short time since then, we have supported, protected, and advocated for hundreds of vulnerable children throughout the central Alberta region – giving them a voice when they need it most.
