Adolescent and Children’s Empowerment (ACE) Program – North Shore Crisis Services Society
Program for children and youth who have been exposed to abuse, threats, violence or substance misuse.
The Adolescent & Children’s Empowerment Program provides services for children between 3 & 18 years of age who have witnessed or experienced abuse, threats or violence in the home. The ACE program is open to children who reside on the North Shore. The ACE program provides assessments, referrals and age appropriate support groups for children and adolescents, individual counselling for children & adolescents, support to parents, group and individual counselling for parents (as time permits) and prevention activities for schools. Through the ACE Program, young people are provided services in a safe, supportive environment where they can express and explore their feelings through art, play and discussion. Participants share with their peers, learn new coping strategies and are empowered through their experiences.
