A treehouse symbolizes the innocence of childhood. It is a place of escape that provides independence, security, and freedom and allows children to dream big dreams, create, and imagine. The Treehouse Child and Youth Advocacy Centre focuses on getting Vancouver’s children and youth who have experienced abuse back to feeling like kids again. The Treehouse brings specially trained police detectives, social workers, and victim support workers together under one safe, comfortable, child-friendly roof to provide sensitive and immediate support to children and their non-offending family members. Trained in best practices in child abuse investigations and interventions, our team keeps the child’s needs front and center every step of the way.
