Called To Protect Foundation - Keeping the Promise Alive

In this program we will learn myths and facts about sexual abuse, detailed warning signs to watch for in adults who may abuse, and how to identify children who may have been abused. “Called to Protect” gives church ministers, parents and families the tools they need to keep children safe. This program has been viewed by almost two million participants nationwide. Church leaders learn specific steps to take in screening, guidelines for interaction, monitoring, training and responding. To keep children and teens safe, standards must be met in parishes, all ministries and anywhere there are children, youth or vulnerable adults.
