Child abuse doesn't just affect the victim or their family. Its repercussions affect entire communities over multiple generations. It is a community problem which requires a community solution.

For this reason, individuals working in certain professions (school faculty and employees, counselors, medical providers, law enforcement, clergy, child care and social workers, and more) are required by law to report suspicions of child abuse to the Department of Health and Human Services, and risk facing a fine and/or jail time if they are found to be in noncompliance.

CARE House offers in-person certification training for these mandated reporters and now, thanks to the generosity of the Detroit Auto Dealers Association Charitable Foundation, we are pleased to offer a version of this training online. It takes 20-30 minutes and a certificate will be emailed to you upon completion of the training.

CARE House Outreach Programs

Child abuse is a topic no one wants to talk about.

It's uncomfortable. It's embarrassing. It draws attention to how vulnerable we are as parents and as communities. But just imagine the impact we could have if we all talked openly about this problem. When we talk about the issue of child abuse and take steps to keep children safe, we can create responsible, proactive communities where there is no place for perpetrators to have access to abuse children.

CARE House believes in its vision to impact the safety of every child in Oakland County.
Through its child abuse prevention education programs, CARE House works to make that vision closer to reality.

Let's talk about it...

For children

Body Safety Training

The Body Safety program empowers children with the knowledge to make decisions concerning their own bodies - that is, to object or tell someone when they feel their boundaries have been violated, especially because the people who abuse them are rarely strangers. Our Body Safety training teaches children that inappropriate acts by adults are never their fault. Children can protect themselves by learning to follow basic safety rules. Once we teach children the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching, we can teach them how to recognize it and then how to act on it.

Commercial Sexual Exploitation Safety

For middle schoolers, raises awareness on what human trafficking is, who it happens to and why.

Online Safety Training

For children ages 9-11, teaches children how to protect personal information, deal with online harassment, recognize risks and report victimization to adults

For adults

Body Safety Training

Stewards of Children

Stewards of Children is designed to introduce the average layperson to the concept of child abuse - how many children are at risk of being abused; how it affects children and families; who perpetrators are - and to teach them how to recognize the signs and symptoms of abuse in their regular lives, empowering them to protect the children they see everyday.

For professionals

Childhood Trauma Training

Provides education to individuals preparing to become social workers, teachers and other child care workers on trauma-informed care and its benefits for the health and well-being of children.

Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children Training

Provides a basic overview of what human trafficking is and the effect it has on children, and helps individuals to identify and engage victims

Mandated Reporter Training

Professionals who work with children have been mandated by law to report suspected abuse. There are many categories of mandated reporters, including school personnel, child care workers, medical providers, clergy, law enforcement and social workers. CARE House provides training to these mandated reporters on how to recognize and report child abuse.

The Body Safety program empowers children with knowledge that gives them the right to make decisions concerning their own bodies, that is, to object or tell someone when they feel their boundaries have been violated, especially because the people who abuse them are hardly ever strangers. Inappropriate acts by adults are never the fault of children.

People who abuse children are rarely strangers and children can protect themselves by learning to follow basic safety rules. Once we teach children what is OK and not OK touching we can teach them how to recognize it and then how to act on it.

Volunteers are placed with a child based on that child's individual needs. Often these children are more comfortable with and trusting of advocates who best understand their cultural needs and can connect with a child on that level.

Overwhelmingly, African-American and Hispanic/Latino children are over-represented in the child welfare system. In fact. African-Americans represent only 15% of the total population, but make up 35% of the children in the foster care system. Of all CASA volunteers, only 12% are African-American.

With more than 50% of the African-American children in need being boys, we have a special need for more men to stand up and be counted as role models in the lives of these future men.
