TUESDAY, JUNE 2 at 10 AM! You don't want to miss this! Join us for a FREE training opportunity! After families are released to return worshipping in their faith community after the curve flattens from the COVID-19 Pandemic, church communities will be the first faces families and children might see outside of their homes as they return to the world as they knew it, before the pandemic. Your congregation and youth leaders will be the “First Responders” for a child that might be in need of services after sheltering at home. How will you respond? Healing Hearts Child Advocacy Center and The Family Resource Center are teaming up to equip you with the tools needed to recognize, respond and react responsibly when faced with a potential outcry for help from a child in need. Join us for a valuable learning experience through-out a 4- part zoom virtual learning series entitled : Steps to Protecting our Children in a Faith Community. This is a valuable FREE training opportunity you don't want to miss! There is no need to preregister and you do not have to represent a faith community to attend. If you weren't able to attend the previous sessions, you can still join in Tuesday. Topics covered over 4 sessions include: 1. May 19, 2020 - Learn the Facts: Knowing how to prevent child abuse and react skillfully if it occurs. 2. May 26, 2020 - Minimizing opportunities for child abuse in a church environment. 3. June 2, 2020 - Recognizing signs and symptoms of child abuse as a mandated reporter. 4.
