Opening of the new Marie-Vincent Child & Youth Advocacy Centre (CYAC) in the Montérégie: a committed community and collective effort to help more young people and their parents.
On May 16, partners, donors, government representatives and Marie-Vincent team members were on hand... for the press conference announcing the official opening of the 2nd Marie-Vincent CYAC located in Châteauguay, in the Montérégie region. Justice Minister Simon Jolin-Barrette and our spokesperson Mélissa Désormeaux-Poulin were among our special guests. It marked the beginning of another important chapter in Marie-Vincent’s history, as we focus on better service accessibility to reach our goal of helping more young victims of sexual violence in the area. Until just recently, they made up to 30% of those on our waiting list.
