About Little Warriors:

Founded in 2005, Little Warriors (LW) is an organization that educates adults about how to recognize, prevent and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. LW also provides information about the prevalence and frequency of child sexual abuse and information about healing and support resources. In addition, LW is in the midst of a $3.4m capital campaign to construct the Be Brave Ranch, a safe and secure place of treatment and healing for children who have been victims of sexual abuse, as well as their families. When complete, it will be the only long-term treatment facility devoted to the treatment of victims of child sexual abuse in Canada. LW's main program is its prevention program, which has Category A accreditation from the Alberta College of Social Workers, as well as accreditation from the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Since 2005, LW has educated over 11,000 adults through this program.
