Covers steps needed for Creating Safer Havens Certification.
Creating Safer Havens recommends that all staff and volunteer workers who interact with children and youth at a church, or any organization that provides services to children, be screened and fingerprinted. This includes custodians. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Perpetrators move on when they are being watched and the Watchmen are watching! Safety is not automatic, we have responsibility and are accountable to God to take care of all God’s children.
We are to protect them from those who would rob them of their innocence if given the chance. Don’t give them that chance!
