You Can Help

Page_07.jpgThe community has a collective responsibility to help and protect our kids. The continued support of volunteers and sponsors like you allows the Kids’ HOPE Center to continue doing the work we do. We appreciate anyone who is interested in volunteering or helping our organization thrive. Our support comes mostly from grants, donations, and public participation in fundraising events. 


Be a “Steward of Children”

Approximately half of the child abuse investigations in Coos County involve a sexual abuse component. In partnership with the Ford Family Foundation, the Kids’ HOPE Center has set the goal of teaching 5 percent of all Coos County adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse cases.  
 
“Stewards of Children” is a nationally acclaimed, evidence-based curriculum from the Darkness to Light organization.  (Click here for an informative video.)  Kids’ HOPE Center believes that through partnership and education, we can improve the lives of our community’s children.
This free training is recommended not only for individuals who work with children through their professions, but to any adult who feels responsible for protecting a child.  Classes are offered the fourth Tuesday of every month, beginning at 5:30 p.m., at the Kids’ HOPE Center.

 Individualized private training also is available for businesses, parent groups, churches, and other organizations. When requested in advance, workshops and materials can be provided in Spanish.  
Please call Kids’ HOPE at (541) 266-8806 to reserve your individual spot in a monthly workshop, or to schedule a workshop for your group.

The Kids' HOPE Center is proud to be a "Partner in Prevention." This designation is awarded by the nonprofit Darkness to Light. It's a title only given to organization in which at least 90% of workers and volunteers have completed Stewards of Children training.
