It’s another step in the fight against childhood abuse.
Planning continues for the Southern Alberta Children Advocacy Centre, similar to the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre in Calgary, only it will serve areas including Lethbridge and Medicine Hat.
Kennedy was in Lethbridge Tuesday to help with the launch of the new centre, and says it will encompass a number of community agencies to provide seamless, integrated support for young victims.
Back in June, the province announced $1.7-million in funding to support three existing centres and four new centres in Lethbridge/Medicine Hat, Red Deer, Lloydminster and Fort McMurray.
