Four complete child-safety workshop

Sunday, November 4, 2012

Staff

Linda Stephens, Gwen Littleton, Jennie Mattox and Sonya Freeman received a certificate of completion on Oct. 30 after spending five weeks in The Cottage’s Ambassador of Child Safety program. The workshop series works to increase awareness and education methods used in prevention, recognition and the reporting of child sexual abuse. During the five-week program participants learned about healthy sexual development in children and teens, child health, local resources for parents, self care for survivors of sexual abuse, steps to prevent sexual abuse and to recognize and report sexual abuse and more.

The Cottage Sexual Assault and Children’s Advocacy Center works to provide intervention, advocacy, referrals, and support for survivors and families impacted by child abuse and sexual assault. The Ambassador of Child Safety Program is co-sponsored by The Cottage, Athens Housing Authority and Whatever It Takes.
