CORE BELIEFS - In all we do, the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre believes that:
•People can heal and we are facilitators of the healing process.

The lack of respect is one of the root causes of many problems; bullying, harassment, violence, depression, sickness, war and many others. We don’t have a magic wand to make this world instantly respectful but we can all make a difference in our life, our workplace and our community. More respect means better relationships, less employee turnover, less absenteeism, better health, less violence in our community, better grades at school and many other benefits. By promoting respect for others, you promote respect for yourself which is the most important. Join the #iRespect campaign. Together, we can make this world a better place.
