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 are in the process of vacating our location on Cook St and will be moving into a newly renovated space at 1208 Wharf St. This beautiful new office is right on the waterfront and includes a large playroom for therapy as well as other evidence based therapeutic amenities. With the continued easing of provincial COVID restrictions and our upcoming move in date, we plan to be regularly open once again for in person counselling by the end of September.
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.
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. The Victoria Child Abuse Prevention and Counselling Centre is a non-profit organization providing a response in our community. Click here to learn more about us.
