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. This led to the formation of a community-based board representing all of East Central Alberta. In 1997 a formal education program was established, and the child sexual abuse scope was extended to include emotional and physical abuse.


ACAA funding comes from numerous sources: Federal government (Public Health Agency of Canada), Alberta Health Services - Mental Health, United Way of Central Alberta, Ministry of Community and Social Services, the Ministry of Justice & Solicitor General,  and Alberta IODE  as well as foundations, community service groups, corporate sponsors, private donors, and our own fundraising efforts.
