Prevention Education & Outreach
Educating all citizens on the signs of child abuse and the actions each individual must take to help protect our children is the most logical proactive approach towards stopping child maltreatment in our community. The cycle of abuse will continue in perpetuity, unless concerned folks speak out when they think a child is being harmed.
“Stewards of Children” is a national protection program designed to increase knowledge, improve attitudes, and positively change child protective behaviors. This program was created as proper maltreatment identification training for staff and volunteers of schools, churches, and youth based organizations. It also helps provide assistance with implementation of comprehensive child protection policies. This 2-hour seminar is held monthly and is open to anyone in the community. This class is available in either English or Spanish.

It is our intent to arm all children with self-protective information, so they can continue to grow and flourish into healthy adults. Our relationships with Boyd Christian, Covenant Academy, Van Buren County and Warren County Schools allow us to spend quality time with all school age children educating them on their basic right to safety.
“My Body Belongs to Me” is designed with Pre-K and early elementary age children.

Each child will be given an educational activity book to take home to share with their families
“It’s OK to Tell” is designed for the 5th Grade age level. It teaches children to recognize, resist, and report child abuse. Each child will be given an educational activity book to take home to share with their families.
“No Excuse to Abuse” is a 30-minute assembly program designed to educate all school-age children on their basic right to safety. This program incorporates music, puppetry and storytelling into an informative address on abuse, bullying, and respect.
