Become "One in a Million" with Stewards of Children
As of October 2015, Darkness to Light has trained ONE MILLION adults on how to protect children from child sexual abuse. The Stewards of Children® training is known as the number one prevention curriculum in the nation and has been proven to increase knowledge, improve attitudes and change child-protective behaviors. This revolutionary program is for all responsible adult who care about the welfare of children. It is appropriate for youth-serving organizations, sports groups, day care centers, after school programs, children's clubs, schools, church groups and anywhere children are present and cared for.

The goal of Restore Hope is to bring this award-winning training to everyone who works with children, and we invite you to join us. Call Pam Congdon today at 503-667-1189 to schedule a Stewards of Children® training for your organization.
