At viiz, we understand how important it is for us, as a company and as individuals, to support organizations doing good in the community and around the world. We’re proud to be able to share some of our resources with worthy causes in Calgary and the communities in which our staff, customers, and partners live and work. One of the organizations we support is the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre.
The Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre in Calgary is one of 12 Child Advocacy Centres in Canada, and their mission is to provide effective and efficient ways to support child and youth victims of sexual and physical assault. Child Advocacy Centers increase collaboration, reduce costs and speed up prosecutions; the services offered by the centre’s staff and partners include investigation, treatment, prevention, education, and research. Staff members work tirelessly to advocate for, support, and follow-up with victims. Many of these victims and their families don’t know where to turn in the face of devastating crimes, and the Centre is there for them through every step in the process, ensuring that their voices are heard and they receive the support they need.
