Resources Available to Organizations For Protection of Children

In the wake of the recent criminal charges against the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis for mishandling of child sex abuse reports, the Diocese of Helena Bankruptcy, recent lawsuits against other religious groups and a multi-million dollar punitive damage verdict against the Boy Scouts of America, it is important to remember there are readily accessible resources for these and other organizations to prevent child abuse.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention publication “Preventing Child Sexual Abuse Within Youth-serving Organizations” is a rich resource for policies, procedures and strategies to prevent abuse.
