What we do

Combat child abuse, specifically child sexual abuse, by challenging churches, schools and youth organizations to take a stand to better protect children and youth.

How we do it

Through the implementation of the Creating Safer Haven’s child protection program, we will show you how to become a Safer Haven in an unsafe world.

Our Program

“Creating Safer Havens Certification” is a 5-course e-learning program for anyone with children under their care... churches, youth organizations, non-profits and daycare centers.

Our Founder

Creating Safer Havens was developed and first implemented in 1995 by the Founder and President Donalda Shepardson. Shepardson's lifelong commitment to protecting children from sexual abuse, has been demonstrated through her extensive background and volunteer services through foundations and boards. She has served on the Child Protective Services Multi-Disciplinary Task Force for the San Diego County Children's Services Bureau, the San Diego Community Child Abuse Coordinating Council and on the Advisory Board of the California Legislative Coalition to Prevent Child Abuse. She has collaborated with police and sheriff's Child Sex Crimes Units and the California Department of Justice and is a certified finger printer.

A special heartfelt thank you to the children of a high profile church case, who told their stories. They have helped make it possible to better protect Children, Church Workers and Churches. This program is dedicated to those children.

May the Lord Jesus Christ, who loves the children, be glorified through this program.

"Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me; but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea."

Matthew 18:5-6 (R.S.V.)
