Spring Appeal: Show Local Child Victims They Matter

Help Get Kids off Our Waitlist this Spring!

We supported over 1,261 children and youth, and their caregivers, in Waterloo Region, Guelph, and Wellington County this past year alone.

With over 200 young people on our waitlist, there has never been a more urgent time to donate. Every child victim deserves our critical support.

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

While unsettling, we feel these are important statistics to share as Victims and Survivors of Crime Week wraps up. Kids are supposed to enjoy their childhood, and not face heartbreaking acts of wrongdoing. For those who find the courage to report what happened, the justice system brings its own difficulty. The good news is our support can dramatically mitigate their trauma and improve their outcomes.Help get kids off our waitlist and into our supports today!childwitness.com/make-online-donation/#VictimsWeek #childvictimscantwait #thankyou ...

We had a blast at our #OpenHouse at the Child and Youth Advocacy Centre (CYAC) of Waterloo Region yesterday! A big #ThankYou to the 25+ guests who came! Our staff and Board representatives were delighted to welcome community leaders, partners, supporters, and agency friends. It was wonderful enjoying light refreshments, sharing about our impact, and providing tours of the facility.The CYAC is where our front-line support professionals meet with children and youth, and their caregivers, during investigations of abuse and crime. There is tremendous collaboration with our CYAC partners and allies*, and that same powerful spirit was palpable in the air last night!Well received were the kind words of support from MP Mike Morrice for Kitchener Centre and MP Tim Louis! Your advocacy and the federal funding we receive to make our community safer, stronger, and healthier is so appreciated. We are grateful you see the immense return on investment._____________________________________________* Camino Wellbeing + Mental Health, Family & Children's Services of the Waterloo Region, Women's Crisis Services of Waterloo Region, Waterloo Regional Police Service, The Family Violence Project of Waterloo Region, and more. ...
