CYCAA Extends our Deepest Sympathies

The Child and Youth Care Association of Alberta extends our deepest sympathies to the family, friends, and colleagues of Deborah Onwu, a youth counsellor at Wood’s Homes in Calgary, Alberta. Deborah sadly succumbed to her injuries at the hands of a young person in her care in the early hours of Friday, October 25. This terrible loss has been felt across our country, and especially in the Child and Youth Care sector. At this very sad time, we wish to support all those experiencing grief regarding Debra’s passing to take good care of themselves.
