A safe and healthy community for children and families
VCAPCC responds to children, youth and families affected by sexual abuse and other trauma, by providing victim services, counselling, prevention and education within the Greater Victoria community, and consultation throughout British Columbia.
Our philosophy is that children, youth and their families have the capacity to heal from the effects of child abuse and maltreatment when appropriately supported by their family, community and through the services they receive.
We will be taking a short break over the holidays starting December 19th. We will return to offering our services remotely on January 4th, 2021. We wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you when we return in the New Year!
Following the recommendations of the provincial government due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the province, we have closed our office for in-person counselling sessions. We are still here for you in every other capacity and our counsellors are still providing services remotely. We hope it will be safe enough soon for us to reopen our doors to you. In the meantime, please take care of yourself and your families and we look forward to seeing you.
The Victoria Fire Fighters held a pumpkin smash event early in November where families brought their old Halloween pumpkins to be dropped from the fire fighter's aerial ladder. The event was by donation with the Victoria Fire Fighters Charitable Foundation matching the money raised and donating it to the Victoria Child Abuse Prevention and Counselling Centre. Pictured above is our executive director Sandra Bryce accepting the donation from the Victoria Fire Fighters. All of us here at the Victoria Child Abuse Prevention and Counselling Centre greatly appreciate the support of the Victoria Fire Fighters! We thank them for being heroes to our community in more ways than one!
Child abuse hurts the child, the family and society. It is not just an individual problem but a family and social problem. Society, including each community, has an obligation to respond to the problem of child abuse.
