About Snowflake Place

Who We Are

Snowflake Place for Children and Youth is a unique and special place. We are Manitoba’s only Children’s Advocacy Centre. We are a charitable non-profit organization that offers a central service model for victims of child abuse. We are designed to facilitate multi-system collaboration and foster best practices in child abuse investigations to ensure that victims receive sensitive and immediate support in a setting that puts their needs first.

What We Do

We provide a safe, child-friendly and supportive environment where young victims are interviewed as part of a formal investigation into allegations of child abuse. Police, Child and Family Services, and Victim Services come together at Snowflake Place to share information and coordinate roles and responsibilities.

What is a Child Advocacy Centre?

A child advocacy centre provides a seamless, coordinated and collaborative approach to addressing the needs of child victims of abuse or children who have witnessed crime. Child advocacy centres seek to minimize system-induced trauma by providing a child-friendly setting for child victims or witnesses and their families.

Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you.
