Feel free to read some of the stories that clients have shared with us regarding the service that they have received.

"I am writing in to express my appreciation for the P.A.C.E. program that I currently have my son involved with. Prior to meeting Ken and his team, our family was struggling with finding helpful resources and supports for our young son who is just only 10 years old. Ken and his team has literally saved our family. Our child was struggling so much with his mental health and our family just felt like we were stuck at a roadblock. We have feared of our child safety at one point in time, we feared of him being removed from the school he was attending, as he was sent home basically on a daily basis. I was at the point where I was considering terminating my full time employment as a personal support worker to stay home with our child because of his special needs. As a mother I felt so helpless for my child. I felt as if I was failing no matter which direction I tried to turn for help. With that all being said! A year has passed since our sons involvement with the P.AC.E program and Ken. We are beyond thrilled to say we have never seen our son thrive as much! He has built confidence, he’s happier, he’s able to manage and cope with feelings, and to top everything all off, he’s thriving in his new school!
Extended family members, psychiatrist, and counsellors have all commented on the change they’ve seen for the better! Many people who are involved in our childs life cannot believe how happy our little boy is from a year ago. Our family cannot begin to express the joy and happiness Ken and his team has brought back to our child and our entire family.
Thank you so much we are truly blessed to be apart of this program and gain the supports we have!"

“Dear Mr. O’Neil,


I just wanted to write and thank your staff for your help and support with my two daughters. As you know, both girls are FASD. Over the past few years the girls have gotten through some difficult situations and you have been there for them. I really feel if you and the wonderful people that work with you were not there in the school for them and other students, I don’t think my girls would still be in school. I know that the girls have said many times that they would have quit school if not for you. Recently, your help and support getting our daughter back on track with her life, was a godsend for our family. She is now involved with the appropriate organizations for her to gain the necessary skills for her to move forward in hopes that she may be an independent adult. The counselling and encouragement that is supplied by your office is much needed for our children going to school off reserve. I hope that this program continues, possibly made a permanent arrangement within the school, because our kids need it. It might be the only way they make it through to graduation.


Thank you.”

In Memory of Ava Chauvin

I enjoy coming to P.A.C.E. because P.A.C.E. is like a home away from home—a place where they don’t look at you for what mental health state that you are, they look at you like a person. They care. They show you they care by doing everything they can to help you choose the right path. I’ve only been at P.A.C.E. for a couple of months now, and they have pushed me to be a person that I am proud to be today.

Ava Chauvin in memorial

Former P.A.C.E. student, Ava Chauvin, taken from us too soon in a tragic car accident. After completing our program, Ava had gone on to be an amazing student and near graduate of the PSW program. She wanted to do what P.A.C.E. did. She wanted to help others. Ava is deeply missed by all.
