Rotary Club of Niagara Falls Sunrise

Nancy, Donna Christe and Carrie
At our Sept 6th meeting, we were honoured to have Donna Christe of the Niagara Regional Sexual Assault Centre enlighten us about the Centre's accomplishments.  The NRSAC provides counselling though out the region for Women and men that have experienced sexual assault at any time in their lives. There is such a demand for these services that Donna has to sometimes tell desperate inquiries that there will be a 6 month wait.  Her many volunteers assist in such programs as a 24 hour Crisis Support phone line and a Hospital Response Program.  The Niagara organization was the first Canadian group to initiate CAPP.  This is a Child Assault Prevention Program designed for giving school children 'Lifetime strategies" in dealing with assault.
