Doing more to protect children and prevent the abuse of adults requires a culture change. GRACE’s Safeguarding Initiative helps your church, school, or any other religious community implement “best practices” to protect the vulnerable as well as address the underlying reasons abuse flourishes.
A GRACE Certification Specialist walks you through a comprehensive process that includes:
In person, expert training for every level of the church: Leadership, Adults, Youth, and Children,
Establishing a Safeguarding Team to help implement all policy “best practices” customized to your church’s ministry,
Providing an on-site building risk assessment,
Implementing specific steps to create a healing environment for survivors.
The GRACE Safeguarding Initiative is customized, comprehensive, and realistic. We work with your leadership to ensure the necessary steps are taken to establish a culture where everyone—young and old—can be protected, safeguarded, and loved.
GRACE empowers your leaders with the tools to lead your community to learn what it takes to prevent abuse and learn how to respond properly. Our Safeguarding Initiative helps your leaders take informed steps in line with your ministry values and informed by expertise in child protection.
Our GRACE team is comprised of mental health experts, former prosecutors, and pastors who possess a combined experience of over 100 years addressing abuse-related issues. We look forward to leveraging our experience and expertise to assist your efforts to create a safer community for your children and for those who have been impacted by abuse.
