Support – Resources & Referrals

The Bison Child & Youth Advocacy Centre is dedicated to providing assistance to non-offending parents and caregivers. Learning about the possible sexual or physical abuse of a child can be a confusing and overwhelming experience. Every family that experiences a child’s disclosure of abuse faces numerous decisions and perhaps changes to their daily life. Regardless of whether or not a report of abuse results in prosecution — crisis intervention, support and advocacy services are available to each child and family member.
