Ride for Reason in support of Sophie’s Place

Men of Hope’s 2013 Ride for Reason will be donating funds to Sophie’s Place Child Advocacy Centre in Surrey, BC.

Sophie’s Place is intended to be a multi-disciplinary, child centred service for children who are victims of abuse.  It is to be modeled after the Zebra Child Protection Centre in Edmonton. The Advocacy Centre will support children 0-12 who are victims of abuse with a new more child friendly approach to investigations of abuse; sadly, children with special needs are disproportionately victims of child abuse.
