Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre (CACAC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to work in an integrated, trauma-informed environment to treat abused children, youth, and their families, support their recovery, and seek to stop the cycle of abuse. The Centre's mission is 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. Its Service Delivery team is trained in specialized trauma-informed care that encompasses understanding, recognizing and responding to the effects of all types of trauma, reducing the impact of long-term mental health and related societal issues. The services provided by the Centre are centered around 4 main pillars; forensic interview services, child advocacy, therapy, and education, prevention and awareness.
