Child sexual abuse affects more than just children and their families – it affects entire communities.

To empower adults and protect children, Brigid Collins proudly partners with Darkness to Light to provide the nationally recognized, Stewards of Children training.

This revolutionary program educates adults to recognize and reactresponsibly to child sexual abuse. It is the only child abuse prevention program shown to increase awareness of child sexual abuse, improve attitudes about adult responsibility and increase protective behaviors.

Trainings are offered to the public each month, and unless otherwise indicated, begin at 5:30pm and last two hours. To cover the cost of materials, there is a $10 fee to attend. Register for one of our upcoming trainings below!

Facilitators are also available for any group of six or more. For more information, or to schedule a training for your group, contact Veronica Lopez at
