The Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness supports over 130 agencies and thousands of individuals nationwide. Shelters, Childrens’ Aid Society, police departments and other victim service agencies do not always have the funds, or the time to raise the funds, to renovate their facilities to make them victim friendly. Each year, the CCAA chooses one or two outside agency building projects to fund in this way through our DreamBuilds program.

Our corporate partners not only financially support these DreamBuilds, but also get right into the building process as fully committed hammer-and-nail wielding construction volunteers.

Examples of DreamBuild Projects:

  • Toronto Police Services Building-Sex Crimes Unit (interview room)
  • North York Women’s Shelter
  • Yellow Brick House
  • Durham Youth Housing & Support Services
  • Teen Challenge Rehabilitation Facility for Women
