Child and Youth Counselling Program

This program is designed to aid children and youth between the ages of three and eighteen years of age and their caregivers who have been impacted by violence.

By working with children and youth, the CWWA (Children Who Witness Abuse) program strives to end the intergenerational cycle of violence by promoting healing. 

Counselling addresses the emotional, social behavioural, and psychological issues arising when a child witnesses violence, and helps children learn to cope.

The CWWA program provides both group and individual counselling, community presentations regarding the effects of children and youth being exposed to violence, and school based educational activities designed to prevent violence.
