Stewards of Children

Our Stewards of Children child sexual abuse prevention training is for parents and adults who work or volunteer with kids. Stewards is smart, evidence based, and empowering. It has been shown to work: adults who take the training follow up with actions that help keep kids safe.

How Stewards of Children works.

The two hour training includes facilitator-led discussion, interactive workbook activity, and compelling video featuring experts, parents, and adult survivors of abuse. Stewards of Children goes beyond awareness—it provides skills. Participants learn specific concrete actions that they can take, as individuals and as a part of bigger organizations, that work to protect children.

Training at your organization.

In 2017, CAC Hope House trained 280-adults in Stewards of Children; as a result, 2,800 children are safer in our community. Parents, employees and volunteers in schools, medical centers, places of worship, after-school groups, and other organizations are better prepared to protect the kids in their care. When organizations get Stewards training for their staff and volunteers, kids are safer.

If you have a group of five or more, we’ll provide the training at your setting. This training is completely free through sponsorship by the Louisiana Children’s Trust Fund.

Open enrollment sessions.

We also provide FREE Stewards sessions every month. The sessions are held at Hope House located at 223 W 28th Ave. in downtown Covington. Pre-registration is required. To learn more or to register, contact our prevention coordinator Jessica Fuselier at  or 985-892-3885 Ext 1. The actions you take today may help save a child from undeserved suffering. All participants will receive CEU certificates following completion. We also serve dinner and drinks during each training session, free of charge.
