What We Do



At WECYAC, we take a holistic and collaborative approach to supporting children and youth impacted by abuse. We believe that kids should only have to tell their story once!

We collaborate with a wide range of professionals specializing in child abuse investigations, intervention, and treatment to achieve the most efficient and helpful outcomes in cases of child abuse.

Trauma-Informed Care

At the heart of our approach is trauma-informed care. We recognize the profound impact of trauma on young lives and prioritize creating environments that are sensitive, supportive, and empowering for those we serve. We have advocates and offer resources to support LGBTQ+ youth, indigenous children, and those with diverse mental health needs
