who we are

Dedicated to Change.

We exist to equip the Church with a vision for authentic community, where responsibility, accountability, and compassion are second nature and caring for children and adult survivors of abuse is non-negotiable. 

We believe with proper education and training every church and faith organization can effectively navigate its responsibility to appropriately care for those who have been impacted by abuse.

One of the ways we prepare faith communities is through our Safeguarding Certification. Click the button below to learn more.
