CALACS Name and Logo
The logo represents the helping relationship between a person and a counselor. The leaves that appear between the two faces represent growth and hope. We believe that healing and growth are possible after having experienced sexual violence; especially with help and support.
A bôme is a french word which is translated to the word boom in english which is the horizontal mast that supports the sail of a sail boat. The boom respresents the support that CALACS brings to the community and to the victims that come to the organization for support and accompaniment.
