With Teams in: Waterloo Region
What moves you? Join us on October 5, 2019 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere.
For every $1,000 you and your team raise, you will ensure that a young person, who found the courage to tell someone they were being abused or is a victim or a witness of a crime, will be heard and supported through the criminal justice process and connected to services to help them begin to heal.
In 2019-20 the Child Witness Centre will walk with 1,400+ in Waterloo Region, Guelph and Wellington County, supporting their healthy development through trauma-informed, wraparound support uniquely tailored to their needs.
By ensuring that children, youth and their families are informed, supported and included, we are reducing the risk of further re-victimization and have the potential to significantly change the trajectory of their young lives by fostering healing, hope and wellbeing.
