Our Vision and Mission


 We believe thriving children create thriving communities. To that end, we focus on a community-wide response to childhood trauma that combines excellence in treatment, state-of-the-art education, and community oriented prevention initiatives aimed at reducing the incidence and impact of child maltreatment and promoting the safe and healthy development of children.

THRIVE Child and Youth Trauma Services, previously the Community Child Abuse Council, has been strengthening children, youth, and families since 1976 through the provision of child abuse prevention, education, and specialized clinical treatment programs. We also provide a voice for our community's youngest members, working to make sure their needs are addressed and their experiences reflected in Hamilton's response to child maltreatment. Community engagement is a vital part of our work, and we're continually seeking new and effective ways to start conversations about what it will take for our community to help children thrive.
