We are happy to share some exciting news and updates with you!

We supported 1,011 children and youth, and their families, in Waterloo Region, Guelph, and Wellington County this past year alone.

With over 100 young people on our waitlist, there has never been a more urgent time to donate. Every young victim and witness of abuse and crime deserves our support.

What is it like for the children we support? Laura Cook sheds some light in this video.

“The support of Child Witness Centre for me was… lifesaving.” - Past client

It was wonderful #celebrating our collaboration with Coalition of Muslim Women - KW (CMW) last Wednesday at Camino Wellbeing + Mental Health! Since April of 2023, we have enjoyed having Munazza Abbasi (on left in first photo) and Bouran Abbas (on right) on our team through secondments.At least 24 individuals attended the event for a roundtable discussion, light lunch, and tour of the facility. Attendees came from partner organizations, including Family & Children's Services of the Waterloo Region, The Family Violence Project of Waterloo Region, and Waterloo Regional Police Service. We also greatly appreciate that some local dignitaries came.*At Child Witness Centre (CWC), we believe every young victim of abuse and crime should be helped through the justice system - regardless of their race, ethnicity, creed, or other factor. Discussed on Wednesday were the #benefits, #learnings, and #opportunities that came from the secondments for our clients (especially from minority groups) and the community.More great news is Munazza and Bouran have recently been hired by CWC for longer-term contracts! Munazza will solely be at CWC for the next few years, while Bouran will continue to serve part-time with both organizations.Learn more: childwitness.com/celebration-cmw-collaboration/____________________________________________________*Stephanie Stretch (Councillor for City of Kitchener), Karen Redman (Chair for Waterloo Region), Aislinn Clancy (MPP for Kitchener Centre), Dawn Gill (Office Manager for MP Mike Morrice for Kitchener Centre), and Valerie Bradford (MP for Kitchener South - Hespeler). ...
