Calgary Region, Child and Family Services (CFS), is honoured to be an integral part of establishing the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre. It is exciting to be a part of a community-driven initiative where all partners and stakeholders share the common goal to make a difference in the lives of children and families affected by abuse.
Child abuse is a complex issue that has far-reaching and devastating impacts on individuals, families and communities. Calgary Region, Child and Family Services, through Alberta Human Services, knows the importance of providing effective collaborative services to help children and families impacted by abuse. We work with the Calgary Police Service, Alberta Health Services, various community groups and agencies to support the children and families we serve in the community.
Calgary and surrounding areas are communities of endless possibilities and when community partners collaborate, it creates innovative and exciting opportunities. The Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre is a powerful example of strong partnerships, willing hearts, and experts who will ensure abused children and their families receive the coordinated and comprehensive help they require.
We look forward to realizing the positive outcomes that will be achieved through this compassionate and collaborative model.
