When we began the work to establish the Child and Youth Advocacy Centre (CYAC) and fill a gap in service by establishing the Advocate role as part of the CYAC process, this more than doubled our annual budget. To address this we received seed funding from the federal government through the Department of Justice.
In addition we launched our Safe Hands-Strong Futures… Hearing, Helping, Healing community campaign. Our campaign goal was to raise $2 million which would give us the chance to move forward with the implementation of the CYAC and give us the program funding we needed to support the work in the initial few years.
Today we are proud to announce the campaign has wrapped up with a grand total of:
$2 million, 43 thousand, 119 dollars!
