Our Cause

CHANGING THE WAY CENTRAL ALBERTA RESPONDS TO CHILD ABUSE

OUR VISION

Empowering children and families impacted by abuse to lead healthy and fulfilling lives by building a community that collectively battles child abuse.

OUR MISSION

To work in an integrated, trauma informed environment to treat abused children, youth, and their families, support their recovery and seek to stop the cycle of abuse.

OUR CAUSE

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is dedicated to nobly protect the innocent and vulnerable. We understand that the best way to a healthy future is through the protection of today’s most innocent and vulnerable, our children.

The centre is comprised of a collective that is driven by the courage to support children, youth and their families affected by abuse, enabling them to build enduring strength and overcome adversity. It takes courage to come together as a community to bring child abuse to the forefront, giving voice to a difficult issue that is often silenced.

We work in an integrative partnership with the Central Region Children's Services, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Justice, Alberta Education, the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre and the RCMP and together harness our collective courage to support children in overcoming adversity as a means of building healthy futures.

It takes courage and bravery for a child to share their story of abuse. It takes courage for families to bring their children forward, and it takes courage to believe, to listen without judgment, and to seek justice. Prevention and awareness of child abuse is the most important step in changing the way our community responds to child abuse. We provide educational services to help identify and report abuse in our community and school system.

We will continue to educate the community, child care providers, educators and any organization serving children until no child is abused. Supporting the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre today is an investment in the promise and possibility of a healthy future for our children and our community.
