SCAN: Stop Child Abuse and Neglect (K-7): A prevention program to educate youth in the community on ways to protect themselves from Bullying, Sexual Abuse, Physical Abuse and Neglect. This program helps to eliminate the abuse and neglect of children through education. This program is exceptionally important because education and awareness can mitigate abuse already in progress. Children often don’t understand that what is happening to them is wrong, and not their fault. This program is designed to offer information through puppet shows and videos and most importantly opens a safe discussion on healthy behaviors.


Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children Child Sexual Abuse Protection Training
Known as a revolutionary sexual abuse prevention training program, Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children help to educate adults on how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. The program believes and teaches that child safety is an adult’s job.
