What is a
Child Advocacy Centre?

Child Advocacy Centres (CACs) are child-focused centres that provide a trauma-informed, coordinated approach to investigation, intervention, treatment & prosecution in child abuse cases.

CACs minimize the impact of child abuse on the victim & the family by:

  • Reducing the number of times the child/youth victim has to repeat their experience of abuse
  • Providing a faster & more streamlined investigation process
  • Increasing timely access to support & therapeutic resources for child/youth victims & their families
  • Providing long-term support & follow-up for the child/youth and their family

CACs provide a leading practice in joint investigation intended to serve the developmental & emotional needs of young victims through the dovetailing of investigation & criminal justice while providing follow-up mental health needs.

👉 At the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre, we believe every child should have a toolkit filled with healthy ways to express themselves and communicate their complex emotions and to cultivate a sense of agency and positive body image.

😎 Our Summer programs were made to help children & youth develop these skills through a week of exploration of different physical activities or the exploration of multiple art modalities. Join us this Summer for one or two weeks!

☑ Our free week long programs are designed for youth ages 9 to 13 who have completed their investigative process with FACS Niagara and/or the Niagara Regional Police or those who have experienced abuse or trauma.

🚌 All expenses are covered including transportation to and from excursions and daily snacks and lunches!

🧐 Learn more about our programs by visiting us at kristenfrenchcacn.org or email kkaior@kristenfrenchcacn.org today!
