What we do

P.A.C.E. which stands for Providing Assistance, Counseling, & Education provides a variety of services in the Grande Prairie community & area, including crisis intervention, family support, educational workshops, and counseling services involving sexual abuse, sexual assault, child abuse, and trauma. P.A.C.E. believes that everyone dealing with, or experiencing crisis and trauma has the right to access skilled, caring, and professional services.

If you have experienced sexual abuse, sexual assault, or trauma, you are welcome to phone P.A.C.E. and schedule an appointment with one of our qualified counselors. Fees are based on a sliding scale.



PACE opened its doors on July 1st, 1981 and over the past 30 years, has established numerous programs to meet the needs of the community and surrounding area. In 1982, PACE became the sponsoring agency for the Suicide Prevention Resource Network and The Breakfast Club, which now operates as its own agency.

Most recently P.A.C.E. helped establish the Caribou Child & Youth Centre located on the top floor of the P.A.C.E. building. The Caribou Centre provides a venue for RCMP & Child and Family Services to interview children and youth who have had a crime committed against them. The Centre strives to minimize the stress, anxiety, & trauma a child may experience, and promote safety, protection, and justice relating to the crime(s). The Caribou Centre is an active partnership between P.A.C.E., RCMP, Child & Family Services, Alberta Health Services, Victim Services, and the Crown, and modeled after the Zebra Centre in Edmonton.

Current, on-going programs & services are listed on the menu bar to the right.
