Host a Prevention Class

Darkness to Light

Thanks to a generous grant provided by the Children’s Trust Fund of Alabama, Owens House was able to send our Development Director and Community Education Specialist, Haley Hawkins, to Darkness to Light Facilitator Training. She is now certified to provide the Stewards of Children curriculum to anyone in the Shelby County community free of charge!

Stewards of Children is an evidence-based, adult-focused prevention training designed to inform, empower, and mobilize individuals in the community. Along with the traditional 2-hour course, Haley can provide any of the additional 30-90 minute courses: Talking with Children about Safety from Sexual Abuse, Healthy Touch for Children and Youth, Bystanders Protecting Children from Boundary Violations and Sexual Abuse, Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children, or  Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect. 

This opportunity, provided by the Alabama Department of Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention, ultimately advances our mission of equipping Shelby County to restore victims and prevent future abuse. Together, we can protect children! 

Are you involved in a club, bible study, or community group that could benefit from this course? Reach out to Haley at to get on the schedule, or fill out the “Request a Speaker” form on our “Contact Us” page.
