CARE House to facilitate training
08-01-2011 (Dayton, OH) -
Through a grant from the national Kappa Delta Foundation, the Dayton Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Delta will partner with CARE House to deliver a nationally recognized educational program to help prevent child abuse. The program, called Stewards of Children, is expected to reach 250 Dayton-area adults, educating them on how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
The local alumnae Kappa Delta chapter will recruit area child-serving organizations and parent groups to participate in Stewards of Children training and will provide the curriculum materials each participant. CARE House will facilitate the training at no cost to the participants. Kappa Delta and CARE House anticipate at least 2,500 children will be better protected from sexual abuse because of their partnership.
Stewards of Childrenparticipants will learn seven steps to preventing, recognizing and reacting responsibly to child sexual abuse in the 3-hour training session. Those steps are:
- Learn the facts. Understand the risks.
- Minimize opportunity.
- Talk about it.
- Stay alert.
- Make a plan.
- Act on suspicions.
- Get involved.
CARE House is the only provider of the Stewards of Children in Montgomery County. More than 5,000 adults have participated in training facilitated by CARE House since the fall of 2004.
