The Toronto Child Abuse Centre is a community-based agency committed to eliminating child abuse through coordinating efforts to improve prevention, detection, reporting, investigation and treatment. The Centre strives to develop and expand services for abused children, their families and offenders. Early in 1997 the Board of Directors determined that the focus and scope of the organization be expanded to encompass all forms of child abuse, including physical, emotional and sexual, as well as neglect. Children who witness violence will also be considered as part of this expansion.
