Every dollar donated to Alberni Community & Women’s Services Society through CanadaHelps.org in the month of June gives us a chance to win $10,000.
What would we do with $10,000? We would help children in our community lead healthier, happier lives through programs such as our Sexual Abuse Intervention Program (SAIP). This children’s program uses counselling and psychotherapy as well as expressive arts (including art play and sand play therapy) to support children and youth ages 3– 18 who have been sexually abused, where sexual abuse is suspected, and children 12 years and under who display inappropriate sexual behaviors. The children may also be taught safety skills. Education, information, and support is provided to parents and caregivers as well.
