When schools sent kids home in March and finished the school year through remote learning, those most vulnerable in our community were no longer around mandatory reporters regularly. In May 2020, Executive Director of the Juliette’s House, Russell Marks stated that he was “very concerned about the number of children who may be quarantined with their offenders.” He commits, “[Juliette’s House] will be there to help them. To help their families to heal, to move forward.”
1) Bill Lindemann, COO of Juliette’s House, reminds us that we each have a responsibility to prevent child abuse. With area schools beginning their fall schedule in Comprehensive Distance Learning, we each need to prevent, recognize, and respond responsibly to child abuse. One of the programs offered by Juliette’s House is the Steward of Children training. This 2½ hour training cover five practical steps adults can take in the dialogue, awareness, and prevention of child abuse. Sign up your business, church, organization for free virtual training by contacting Carole Joa at 971-237-3719.
