September 2018 Monthly Meeting - A Safe & Healthy Community

  • Sisters U / Per Diem Workspace 528 West Market St. Perkasie, PA 18944 USA (map)

Join us for our September 2018 meeting to learn more about the Stewards of Children® training. Grace Weaver of NOVA (Network of Victim Assistance) will share with us about this prevention training that teaches adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. We have many tools that we use to keep children safe; wearing a bike helmet, looking both ways before crossing the street, Band-Aids on scrapes etc.. What tools do we have to protect children from sexual abuse? 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday and 90% of children are abused by a person the family knows and trusts. This means that we need to shatter the myth of “stranger danger” to better protect our children. The good news is that a trained adult can protect an average of 10 children.
