Help your church be safe for survivors and safe from abuse
The Caring Well Challenge provides churches with a clear pathway to immediately enhance their efforts to prevent abuse and care for abuse survivors. Will your church join congregations from around the country by committing to the challenge over the next year as an important next step in addressing the abuse crisis?
There are many sources available for screening potential volunteers and employees in your church. A criminal background check that includes a search of the National Sexual Abuse database has become a standard of care for applicants desiring to work with children and other vulnerable groups.
As a part of your screening, also include:
• A written application
• Reference checks
• Face-to-face interview
