About Our Charity

ORCA Children’s Advocacy Centre Society is in the process of establishing BC's first children's advocacy centre. ORCA Centre will provide a safe place for child and youth victims of sexual abuse and physical abuse to be interviewed and supported by victim service workers, police, child protection workers and others who have been specially trained to meet the needs of young people in these difficult circumstances. With the assistance of our partner agencies and the generosity of interested citizens, foundations and government funders, our goal is to begin providing support services to victims of child abuse through the operation of ORCA Children’s Advocacy Centre by April 2012
