Additional Resources We Provide With Our Community Partners

  • First Responder Training: Offered by the Child Advocacy Center, this presentation provides tips, techniques, examples, and guidelines on how to conduct an initial interview with a child. The presentation focuses on Child Sexual Abuse allegations and is tailored specifically to Law Enforcement and Child Protective Investigators.
  • Darkness to Light Stewards of Children: This prevention training program teaches adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. The 3-hour program led by the Child Advocacy Center is designed for individuals and organizations that serve youth, such as schools, churches, and daycares.
  • Safe Baby Training: This one hour workshop offered by Healthy Start Coalition teaches how to keep your baby safe from the top three preventable causes of infant death. The training aims to teach parents how to choose a safe caregiver for their children, prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome, and promote safe sleep.
