Stewards of Children™

Adult Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Program

Stewards of Children, a prevention training program being offered by New Hope , Blount County Children’s Advocacy Center. This program teaches adults how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.  We are striving to educate 5% (4,900 adults) of the adult population in Blount County in an effort to create a ripple effect of change in the way adults react to abuse in our county.  Since New Hope started facilitating this program in the spring of 2011.  To date we have educated 3,300 adults. Help us continue our endeavor to educate Blount County adults by attending one of our community education sessions or hosting a private training.  Our monthly goal in 2017 is to educate 45 adults each month.

This program is designed for organizations that serve youth and for individuals over 18 that are concerned about the safety of children. It is the only nationally distributed, evidence-based program proven to increase knowledge, improve attitudes, and change child protective behaviors. Research findings from independent evaluators are available on
