Darkness to Light / Stewards of Children
Family Nurturing Center is pleased to offer the Stewards of Children curriculum in partnership with Darkness to Light. Stewards of Children is a revolutionary prevention program designed to teach adults to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. It was developed to meet the needs of youth-serving organizations, public agencies, schools, law enforcement agencies and parents.
Education provided directly to adults is essential in order to increase parents’ knowledge so that they will be better able to discuss child sexual abuse with their children, detect those children who have become victims, and improve their reaction to children’s disclosures of abuse. Parent-focused child sexual abuse preventive programs have been shown to increase parental knowledge about child sexual abuse, as well as increase the likelihood that parents will discuss child sexual abuse with their children.

The Stewards of Children program has been empirically evaluated and is shown to increase knowledge, improve attitudes and change participants’ child protective behaviors over the long term. In 2007, the Stewards of Children Program was awarded the National Crime Prevention Program of the Year by the National Crime Prevention Council.
