About This Charity
"To prevent the abuse of children and youth and to respond to the needs of children, youth and families who experience trauma or who may be at risk for abuse." The Child Abuse Prevention and Counselling Society of Greater Victoria works with families, schools, police, and professionals in family service, child protection, and community living services to ensure a coordinated, holistic approach to supporting children and their families. Our vision of a community free from child sexual abuse is realized one child at a time, as we work carefully with each child and family to offer hope, healing, and the tools needed to move on with their lives.
About Our Charity
The Child Abuse Prevention and Counselling Society, through the Mary Manning Centre, is the primary provider of therapy and victim services for children and youth in Greater Victoria who have experienced sexual abuse, and is Victoria's only non-profit agency dedicated to treating child victims of sexual abuse. The Society was founded by Mary Manning, a retired nurse who, together with art therapist Rita Milot, began providing counselling services to child survivors of sexual abuse in 1984. As a result of this pioneering work, thousands of people - children, youth, and families - have been helped to heal and recover from the effects of child sexual abuse. Serving more than 200 children and families every year, the Society offers individual and group therapy sessions as well as court preparation and support for children who testify in criminal cases. The agency makes its services accessible to all, and accomodates the needs of children and parents who have disabilities.
