Creating Healthy Communities One Gift at a Time
One of the major challenges we face as an agency is that the need for our services and programs exceed what we currently have funding to offer. Unfortunately with an issue like sexual violence, there are many challenges around funding as it is an issue that can be very uncomfortable for people to acknowledge, and it is an issue that can be tied to judgment and blame.
As a community it is important for us to stand together and say that sexual abuse is not ok. We need to invest in the lives of our children; educate community members of the impact of sexual abuse and sexual assault and recognize the adherent value to society that sexual assault centres play in the lives of those who are survivors.
CCASA recognizes that we are faced with these obstacles surrounding the crime of violence, but we believe in what we do and know that we are making a difference through the counselling, education and outreach program that we deliver. So long as we can continue to raise funds to support our programs and services, we will continue to positively impact our communities, and reach our goal of healthy communities free of sexual abuse and sexual assault.
We all have something to gain by becoming involved in the prevention of sexual violence!
