Chinook Child Advocacy Centre

A Program of the Chinook Sexual Assault Centre

The Chinook Child Advocacy Centre is dedicated to giving children and youth who have experience sexual, emotional, and/or physical abuse or severe neglect, a safe space to share their story and receive the support and resources they need throughout the entire disclosure, investigation, and judicial process. Our blended approach brings together a multidisciplinary team of community partners including Alberta Health Services, Blood Tribe Children’s Services, Blood Tribe Police Services, Lethbridge Police Services, Piikani Child and Family Services, RCMP, and South Region Children’s Services, to offer unified services that provide the right support at the right time in a welcoming, child-friendly, safe environment.
