Preventing Child Sexual Abuse in Cleveland

from the desk of Sondra Miller, Director of Education, Outreach and Community Partnerships

CRCC educators visit K-2 classrooms throughout the school year to talk about preventing child sexual abuse. We use a storybook called “Three Kinds of Touches,” which talks about safe touches, ouch touches and uh-oh touches and what to do if someone touches them in the parts covered by their bathing suits.

Do you want to know if CRCC is presenting to your children’s classrooms? Let us know. You can help by introducing this program to a teacher or principal.

We’re also looking for a contractor for 15 hours/week to help deliver this program. Here are the details:
