If you suspect that a child is being abused, please contact Family and Children's Services Niagara at 905-937-7731, Niagara Regional Police Service at 905-688-4111 or 911 if a child is in imminent danger. As we continue through #PRIDE month, remember that we celebrate and advocate for 2SLGBTQQIA+ voices, culture & rights. Sexual orientation or gender identity should never lead to abuse or discrimination, at any age. The 2SLGBTQQIA+ community is often more likely to experience abuse, especially in childhood. If you or someone you know is danger, please act now. ...
