Hope Heals is a joint fundraising and awareness campaign organized by the Algonquin College Public Relations program (ACPR) on behalf of the Centre for Treatment of Sexual Abuse and Childhood Trauma. ACPR has been involved with multiple charity campaigns for over 25 years and has raised over $300,000 for various national and local charities.
Founded in 1991, the Centre ensures that individuals have the support and professional help they require in order to work through the negative impacts of traumatic experiences that have manifested in their client’s lives. The charity has an annual intake of over 300 clients, and operates with 14 registered therapists. Rather than capping the number of sessions per person, the Centre believes in providing long term care, assistance and therapy for as long as each individual needs, at a subsidized cost. the Centre provides a safe space where trauma victims can receive professional help through individual therapy sessions or group therapy sessions.
Join us as we host 11 fundraising events throughout March and April, and help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 for the Centre.
