Stewards of Children; Adults Resolving Child Sexual Abuse in Community
Darkness to Light’s® Stewards of Children is a revolutionary sexual abuse prevention training program that educates adults to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. The program believes and teaches that child safety is an adult’s job. Stewards of Children is designed for organizations that serve children and youth.
We have trained facilitators in Catawba County.

Two hour training program that includes a video component integrates personal stories of sexual abuse survivors, sharing their experiences of trauma and healing
The program is motivational and compelling. It calls participants into personal responsibility for the safety of children, while at the same time appreciates their fears and concerns.
Thanks to the Preventathon sponsors, The Children’s Advocacy & Protection Center of Catawba County has achieved our first year goal of training 1,200 adults in Darkness to Light: Stewards of Children. Our five year goal is to reach tipping point. That means training 6,000 adults resulting in a safer community for our children.
The CAPC is asking organizations to sponsor a Stewards of Children training by providing a venue for a training event. Schools, businesses, churches, civic clubs and youth organizations are ideal agencies for hosting a training. The training is free of charge, thanks to a grant from the Catawba County United Way and donations from the Hickory Kiwanis Club and the Kiwanis Club of Western Catawba.
