Abuse Prevention & Awareness

Embrace is an organization deeply committed to the safety and protection of children. 100% of Embrace Staff, Board of Directors, and Core Volunteers complete Sexual Abuse Awareness training modules through the MinistrySafe Child Safety Systems. This foundational training equips staff and volunteers with “eyes to see” the grooming of an abuser and key indicators of child sexual abuse. Our policies and procedures guide interaction between adults and children to provide an added layer of protection. Volunteers present at any Embrace-hosted event where children are present must have a current, approved background check through their church, licensing agency, or Embrace. Our staff may decline volunteers if, based on screening techniques, references, or background information, they have any reservations about the individual.
