Our Satellite Club joined with Rotary Club of LaSalle Centennial to hear new Rotarian Jodi Ouellette present information on the Windsor Essex Child/Youth Advocacy Centre. 
This important centre provides a safe place for children and youth under 18 dealing with physical and sexual abuse throughout Essex County. Jodi highlighted the steps currently in place when a child or youth comes forward with abuse. In the past, a child had to repeat his or her story multiple times. The Centre’s belief is that a child should only have to tell their story once and assigns one advocate to represent the child. In partnership with Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Society, the centre has developed a preventative program, “My Body is My Body” which will be presented in schools starting in September. The Centre has also received a federal grant to develop a program that addresses cultural issues and beliefs within the local community.
