Community Outreach Program
Together Everyone Accomplishes More
The Community Outreach Program builds cooperative and mutually supportive relationships with community groups and organizations to raise awareness of sexual abuse and sexual assault.
An effective community responds to the needs of each individual member while addressing sexual abuse and sexual assault issues in an inclusive, proactive manner. The leadership of a healthy agency will foster a safe and supportive atmosphere for individuals affected by the various forms of sexual abuse and sexual assault, create an open and interactive relationship with community groups, and develop a strong, productive partnership with the broader Calgary community.
The Community Outreach Program seeks to build connections, relationships and partnerships with other service providers and diverse communities that are strategic, effective and sustainable in order to understand and meet the unique needs of diverse clients. Building relationships with diverse communities and professional organizations allows the opportunity to address a variety of issues including:
- Accessing Calgary sexual assault and sexual abuse services.
- Providing education, support, and resources to meet unique individual and community needs.
- Enhancing CCASA’s ability to address diverse communities and client needs.
- Managing barriers to services.
- Creating potential partnerships and initiatives with others.
The Community Outreach Program also presents to school and community groups raising awareness of child sexual abuse and the importance of education of this issue to parents so to help parents take an active role in talking to their children with accurate information on this issue. CCASA’s education program promotes a philosophy of integrating healthy relationships with accurate information on specific sexual abuse and sexual assault issues while presenting this in a non-threatening and non-judgmental approach.
