Child Abuse Response & Prevention


Note to Readers:

The information included in these materials is offered to assist churches in identifying and implementing prudent, reasonable, appropriate, and effective abuse response and prevention measures.

It is not intended as — and it is not a substitute for — legal advice.

This database is a work-in-progress, with material being added every week. You may therefore encounter incomplete links on some pages. If you have a question about an incomplete link, please contact us here.
