Our Collaborative Partners

Our 2016-2018 Strategic Plan calls for increased collaboration in inter-agency programming and funding, including developing partnerships with diverse communities across the Niagara Region. In 2016 eight different but similarly-focused Niagara agencies came together to create PECAN (Partners to End Child Abuse Niagara) who developed a comprehensive and collaborative website focused on child abuse awareness, prevention and response:

Partners to End Child Abuse in Niagara is a group of local agencies that want to make it easier for people to find help in addressing potential or actual instances of child abuse. Perhaps you are a caregiver, educator, coach or support worker who may suspect the possibility of child abuse. Or perhaps you are trying to help a victim receive the support they need to move forward. This website is a convenient hub to search and connect you with the right program or provider offered in the Niagara community, for all situations.  We hope to connect you with child abuse programs in Niagara for help in increasing awareness, a strategy for prevention, or a pathway to recovery for a traumatized child
