Child and Youth Sexual Abuse Response Program

The goal of the Child and Youth Sexual Abuse Response Program is to provide crisis, short-term and long-term counselling to children under the age of 18 who have been sexually victimized, as well as counselling services to the non-offending members of their families.

Crisis support staff work closely with the Kawartha-Haliburton Children's Aid Society to assess and screen referrals.

There are two components to this program:

1. A crisis/support service to address immediate post disclosure needs.
2. Ongoing treatment, both short-term and long-term for sexual abuse victims, sexual assault victims, children demonstrating sexualized behaviour, and treatment for the non-offending members of their families.
