We have reached the end of our first official year of the Tri-County Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Initiative! Launched on April 1, 2022, the goal was set to train 10% of the adult population in Stewards of Children to reach a tipping point in New Hanover, Pender, and Brunswick Counties.

In the Initiative’s first year, we have trained 2,307 adults to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse!

Additionally, have trained 46 organizations and received approval for 19 Partners in Prevention. We are in the process of submitting/awaiting approval for 21 additional Partnerships. This will total 40 Partnerships in the Tri-County area! These Partners are listed below:

Join the local Tri-County Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Initiative, or partner with Carousel Child Advocacy Center to become a distinguished “Partner in Prevention”.
