Boost Child & Youth Advocacy Centre

For Giving Tuesday, Boost Child & Youth Advocacy Centre will be taking to a prominent Toronto location to participate in the #RedSandProject, a social media movement to bring awareness to marginalized populations that have fallen through the cracks of our society. By actively involving the public and our supporters in helping us to fill the cracks of our community with red sand, it is our hope to make visible the 40,000 cases of child abuse reported each year in Toronto.

At Boost CYAC it is our mandate is to reduce the incidence of child abuse through the development of coordinated, community-wide efforts to improve prevention, detection, reporting, investigation and treatment. Boost CYAC, Toronto's only child and youth advocacy centre, is a partnership among local community and government agencies, bringing together all professionals involved in child abuse cases in one place for a coordinated, seamless, multidisciplinary response to child abuse victims. Our community partners include police, child protection, education, victim witnesses, crown attorneys, treatment providers, child care staff, nurses, physicians and others. The CYAC has quickly become a leader in promoting excellence in child abuse services, research, training and education. #BoostforKids #BoostSupporters #GiveaKidaHighFive #GivingTuesdayCA
