Safe and Healthy Communities Initiative’s Prevention Training Features Real People Telling Real Stories.

We spoke Shiryl Barto, County Coordinator Safe and Healthy Community Initiative in Cambria and Somerset Counties.

Ms. Barto started our conversation with some startling statistics about how many in our community are effected by child sexual abuse.

We spoke on many aspects of this issue and especially the new Stewards of Children program.

The program, according to the website, “Learn how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.We want you to become confident and competent, knowing how to prevent sexual abuse and react skillfully if it occurs.”
