The CACAC takes on Green Deer!
Our friends over at Notre Dame School have challenged us to team up and join Green Deer!

Green Deer is an annual initiative put on by Kerry Wood Nature Centre (Waskasoo Environmental Education Society) and the City of Red Deer to encourage Red Deerians to do their part in picking up waste around the city.

The CACAC team will be cleaning up around Capstone on May 13th. We hope that you’ll make your own team and join us in helping to keep the city clean! Make your team, and tag the CACAC in your social posts so that we can see your team in action! 

Green Deer is on until May 31st. For details, visit

April is Volunteer Appreciation Month
This month is all about our amazing volunteers! It truly goes without saying that the CACAC would not be what it is without dedicated, fantastic volunteers who champion our cause. From Family Advocates, to events, Climbing Tree mentors, and admin, these people dedicate their time to help the children, youths, and families who come through our Centre.
Keep your eyes open and locked onto our social media pages to see volunteer features this month! If you would like to become a volunteer, consider joining our next Volunteer Info Session on May 30th. You can RSVP for the info session by emailing Nicole at [email protected]

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.
