The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is a not for profit organization rooted in the protection and recovery 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. We work in a collaborative 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. Together we harness our collective courage to provide children with supported recovery. It takes courage and bravery for a child to share their story of abuse, for families to bring their children forward, to believe, to listen without judgement, and to seek justice. 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.

Help shape Red Deer’s housing and homelessness plan

As part of the Community Housing & Homelessness Integrated Plan, residents are invited to complete a survey to provide their feedback about housing and homelessness in Red Deer.

Driven by a Council Ad Hoc Committee, the overall goal of the Community Housing & Homelessness Integrated Plan (CHHIP) is to develop a strategic and innovative housing plan that will help achieve the community’s housing goals.

“Everyone needs a place to live, and the work we’re doing today with the CHHIP will guide housing andhomelessness planning now and in the future,” said Tricia Hercina, Manager of Social Planning with the City of Red Deer. “This is a community plan, and will focus on the full non-market housing spectrum.”

To ensure the plan is reflective of community needs, all citizens are invited to provide their feedback. A survey is currently available at reddeer.ca/surveys. The survey will be open to the public until July 5, 2019, and should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. In addition to the survey, a series of community conversations will occur. These opportunities will be advertised as they become available.

“We are asking for the community’s help with identifying current housing and homelessness needs within Red Deer, and ideas to address those needs in our communities by completing our survey,” saidHercina. “This valuable input will help us ensure this community plan is truly reflective of the community’s needs.”

Click here to go to the survey!

Notre Dame Grad Service Project donates $50,000 to Child Advocacy Centre

From Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools

As of June, this year’s grad service project “Be the Voice” at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School has raised a total of $50,000 for the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre. 

Over the past seven months, students in conjunction with St. Francis of Assisi Middle School have been fundraising through different activities and events, such as bake sales, school challenges, food trucks, etc. From April 1-6, École Secondaire Notre Dame High School hosted their Grad Service Project week, where teams of six students and their team teacher worked together to raise money, compete in ridiculous challenges and earn points. On the final day of that week, student teams, along with a parent completed a 22-hour extreme scavenger hunt throughout Red Deer without a vehicle.

“The service project is a Notre Dame tradition. It is fantastic to watch students connect with the charity they chose. They work so hard to raise funds and make a difference. The student’s passion for success of this project extends to their families. It’s great to see everyone getting involved, have fun and truly make a difference in our community. They realize they can contribute and make our community even better. It’s a life lesson,” said Grad Service Project Coordinator, Shannon Nivens at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School.

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre was the charity of choice this year because students liked the idea of supporting children in their local community. Each year the graduating class from École Secondaire Notre Dame High School chooses a charity to raise funds for through their Grad Service Project. For the past 11 years, students have raised more than $600,000 for student chosen charities.
