Who We Are & What We Do

The Pembina Crisis Connection Society was established in 1990 following a tragic murder-suicide in our community. For twenty-nine (29) years PCCS has sought to offer education, resources, and best practices in the fields of the prevention of violence against self-and/or others. Programs and partnerships continue to evolve and change in response to changes in our communities and the resources available.

 

 PCCS collaborates with community partners to provide violence prevention and education using evidence-based best practices.
