Communities where all children and teens are free from sexual abuse,
and survivors are empowered to live healthy, joyful and vibrant lives.
Educate adults about how to keep children safe from sexual abuse; Engage organizations, institutions, and congregations in developing cultures that prioritize abuse prevention through best practices, policies, and training; Empower adult survivors through new models of healing, including education, trauma-informed groups, and peer-based learning.
