On October 12th, 2018, the Center for Prevention of Violence will be hosting a major fundraising event: A hockey game where members of our community will face the Montreal Canadiens Alumni.
The game will be held at the J.K. Irving Center in Bouctouche, and a portion of the funds will help develop a center of expertise for children victim of sexual assault in the Kent area.
The funds will also support the programs currently offered at the Boréal Center, a center providing services to children victim of sexual assault in the Greater Moncton Area.
The Center’s mission is to “Ensure that the entire population of South-East can live safely and without violence”, notably by responding effectively to the needs of the victims and by coordinating the services needed at the regional and provincial level.
Prevent violence by raising awareness of the existence of violence in all its forms. Through partnership and community involvement, the Center ensures the coordination of the services to be developed in the communities in order to have a common strategic approach.
The Center for Prevention of Violence and the Boreal Center offer numerous programs and services to communities in the South-eastern area. Specifically, the Center for Prevention of Violence, located in Sainte-Anne-de-Kent, offers housing and counselling services for women and children victim of any kind of violence, as well as prevention programs in various schools in the area.
The Boreal Center is the first center in New Brunswick to be specialized in children victim of sexual assault. Located in Dieppe, the center serves approximately 15 children victim of sexual assault per month in the South-East region of New Brunswick.
