About Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre
The Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre is an innovative and compassionate child-focused centre dedicated to transforming how the current system responds to child abuse. Working collaboratively with Calgary Police Services, Calgary and Area Child and Family Services, Alberta Health Services and Alberta Justice, Calgary Crown Prosecutors’ Office, the Centre provides best practices in victim support, investigation, education and treatment of child abuse. Our mission is to provide hope, help and healing to abused children, youth and their families and to improve the community’s response to child abuse.
“We know child abuse is a problem. We know it’s a problem right in our own backyard,” said Sheldon Kennedy. “It’s time to shine a light on the issue – and come together as a community to address child abuse.”
