Description:

Dorothy Evans, Director of Change for FIN

Change for FIN is a registered not for profit corporation comprised of a group of dedicated individuals in the Kingston community committed to reducing the impact of violence in the lives of children and their families. Through partner collaboration, they hope to establish a Child and Youth Advocacy Centre in Kingston to offer a coordinated and collaborative care while addressing the needs of child and youth victims of abuse. CYACs provide a child-focused, multidisciplinary team approach to the investigation, treatment, and prosecution of child and youth abuse. The goal is to minimize any additional system-induced trauma and to enable children to provide stronger evidence which can in turn lead to an increase in charges laid, guilty pleas, convictions and appropriate sentencing. CYACs have been in existence for 30 years and have been proven to offer the best practice with respect to providing advocacy, consistency and trauma-informed support to victims and their non-offending caregivers. http://www.changeforfin.com/
