Non-Offending Caregiver Support Group
Support from a caregiver is the single most important factor in promoting a child’s healing after abuse has occurred. Discovering that their child has been abused or harmed in some way can bring about a mix of emotions for caregivers, from guilt to anger to fear. Caregivers most often want to help their child but can feel overwhelmed; not knowing how to best support or talk with their child. Safe Shores’ Caregiver Support Group connects caregivers with others facing similar challenges, and provides education, crisis support, and self-care tools. If you would like to join the group or if you would like to make a referral, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and a staff member will contact you with information and next steps.
These training teach adults how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. Beginning with Stewards of Children® adults learn the facts about child sexual abuse, and best practices for recognizing, responding to and preventing abuse in their communities and organizations. For those that have completed Stewards of Children®, supplemental trainings take a deeper dive and further develop skills and challenges adults face when navigating abuse prevention in the real world.
Community Outreach and Tabling
Child maltreatment is a complex issue that requires the cooperation of multiple organizations, service providers, and communities to address it appropriate and ultimately, to stop it. Safe Shores welcomes the opportunity to partner with local organizations and groups that are working to protect and improve the health and safety of the DC’s children. If you would like a Safe Shores representative to be present at a community fair event, please contact Mrs. Gerald Versey (email@example.com) for more information.
