Content warning: Discussion of child abuse.
Christy Dzikowicz has been helping to keep vulnerable children safe for over 25 years. As the Executive Director of Snowflake Place, Christy is helping to lead the way by changing systems, challenging norms, and advocating for the rights and comforts of abused kids.
Christy was also the winner of The Winnipeg Foundation’s Fast Pitch 2020, where 12 non-profit organizations presented their stories in the hopes of winning 10,000 dollars.
I sat down with Christy to talk about her experience at Fast Pitch, her incredible career helping children in their biggest time of need, and how we can have tough conversations with our kids that might just save their lives.
