Darkness to Light

Stewards of Children

Darkness to Light, a national nonprofit organization committed to increasing public awareness of child sexual abuse, was founded in response to staggering statistics: 1 in 10 children experience child sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. In seconds, their childhoods are shattered, their innocence stolen forever.

Worse still, the effects haunt them for years, increasing the likelihood of drug and alcohol dependency, eating disorders, teen pregnancy, delinquency, violent crime, and debilitating fear.

The damage doesn't end there. The impact on youth-serving organizations can be dramatic. Child molesters are drawn to organizations which serve youth. When this happens, the costs are enormous. Children are hurt, the organization's reputation is tarnished, and the financial loss can be devastating.

Darkness to Light has developed Stewards of Children -- a revolutionary prevention training program developed for youth organizations. It was designed to educate adults to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. Stewards of Children equips and empowers adults to keep children safe.

Whether you're involved in camps, clubs, church or school groups, sports and recreational programs, or children's advocacy, CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE PREVENTION IS YOUR JOB. It will take a combined effort by organizations like yours to protect children.

CONTACT the Crisis Line has certified facilitators who will conduct Stewards of Children program for your staff and volunteers. Created by experts in sexual abuse prevention, this comprehensive program incorporates easy-to-use tools. The content is compelling. At its core is Darkness to Light's "5 Steps to Protecting our Children", a set of best practice prevention strategies shown to be effective in research.

To schedule a training program, or for more information, call the CONTACT office, 601-713-4099.
