What if everyone came together to work for troubled children?

It’s a sad fact that children today can encounter abuse almost anywhere.  Often the long term affects stay with children for their entire lives… then they might just impact the next generation as well.  Many agencies are doing all they can to help.  But sometimes just the fact that they are “different” agencies can mean the best of intentions are never realized.  In some cases well meaning, well trained, and hard working people are stifled in their attempts to help in the healing process.

That’s what Sheldon Kennedy discovered when he began to look into the best possible type of care to offer children who’ve been abused like he was.  Thanks to his efforts, a full roster of professionals joined together under one roof to put the interests of the children at the forefront.. and the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre was established in Calgary.

When a group of Red Deer parents devastated by youth suicide discovered the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre, they set out to ensure children in Central Alberta would have access to the same type of care.  This is the story of the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre.
