About Us

 

In the late 1980s, a group of people from East Central Alberta began talking about the significant number of child sexual abuse cases they were seeing and the lack of services available to these victims. This led to the formation of a community-based board representing all of East Central Alberta. In 1990, ACAA served the first therapy client and in 1997  education programs were established. Since then, ACAA has grown to provide a wide range of services and education options to meet the needs of the individuals and communities within the region.
 
ACAA funding comes from numerous sources: Federal government (Public Health Agency of Canada), Alberta government: Minister of Community and Social Services, Minister of Justice and Solicitor General, Minister of Health, Alberta Health Services - Mental Health, Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis, United Way of Central Alberta, IODE, foundations, community service groups, corporate sponsors, private donors, as well as our own fundraising efforts.
