Alisa's Wish is a Community Initiative
Our Multi-Disciplinary Team
For many years, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows RCMP, Ministry of Children and Family Development and Community Service Organizations helped children, youth, and supporting families who were victims of abuse. They knew there had to be a better way.
These community leaders had a vision – bringing help to the victims and supporting families ‘under one roof’ with Alisa’s Wish Child and Youth Advocacy Centre. This would:
- Improve the chances of successfully convicting abusers using quality interviews from The Centre
- Speed up the access and understanding of support services to victims by having the Child and Youth Counsellor explain and help navigate the system with the victims
- Improve chances of healing in a healthy way by having the Child and Youth Counsellor work with the victims as soon as they walk through The Centre’s doors and staying with them through their healing journey
