Safe Haven Program
The Catholic Church is dedicated to ensuring the safety of children, but the prevention of child abuse requires more than adult awareness, education, and training about the nature and scope of the problem. We must also give our children the tools they need to overcome the advances of someone who intends to do them harm. The Teaching Touching Safety program guide (Teaching Touching Safety Guide) is a tool designed to assist parents and teachers in this important task. The Touching Safety program is a vehicle through which parents, teachers, catechists, and youth ministers give children and young people the tools they need to protect themselves from those who might harm them.
Before serving in the school, all volunteers are required to complete Safe Haven training and the appropriate background checks. For more information, please contact the Safe Environment Coordinator.
