Serving the GTA and all of Southern Ontario
Kristen French Foundation
Provides a safe place to help, heal and end child abuse for Niagara’s children and youth who have been physically abused, sexually abused, become the targets of internet luring, or were the unwilling witness of violence.
The home-like Centre is child focused and a family’s privacy is always respected. Children speak about their experience of abuse to specially trained teams that investigate and conduct forensic interviews. These video recorded interviews are proven to be effective in gathering valuable information to help both the child and the justice system. Counselling is provided at no cost and without a wait list through Family Counselling Centre Niagara.
Opened in 2008, Kristen French CACN is a registered charity that serves Niagara’s 12 municipalities, helping children and families cope with the life altering impacts of child abuse.
The Family Advocacy program provides a number of post-investigation support including: referrals to community social services as well as trauma counselling and support groups for differing ages. These services are delivered sensitively, free of charge and confidentially. The Family Advocacy Program is voluntary and services are only provided with your consent.
Kristen French CACN’s core partners are the Niagara Regional Police Service, Family & Children’s Services Niagara and Family Counselling Centre Niagara.
