The Stewards of Children: Darkness 2 Light training teaches how to prevent, recognize and report child sexual abuse. Darkness to Light training is led by a trained facilitator in a group setting, offered in both English & Spanish sessions. The training implements testimonies from survivors and experts to help inform and prevent sexual abuse.

Since starting the Darkness 2 Light Training in 2012 Harmony Home CAC has been able to train and educate over 7000 adults and continue to train almost 800 adults yearly! Our goal is to prevent Child Sexual Abuse and this is a huge step in helping adults understand the importance of recognizing, reacting and reporting child sexual abuse. Thanks to local funding by United Way of Odessa we are able to offer this training for free to all adults.
Organizations that train their staff and volunteers create an environment that better protect children. Perpetrators are drawn to places where they can have easy access to children. An organization that emphasizes prevention through training and appropriate polices is an unwelcoming place for a perpetrator. Training increases staff and volunteer awareness that teaches them to recognize the signs that an opportunity exists for abuse to occur, and the signs that abuse has occurred. It is also critical that staff and volunteers know how to react if they recognize the signs or if a child discloses abuse.
