Gulf Coast Kid’s House Advocates Provide Free Safety Training

Did you know the state of Florida mandates that anyone who knows or has reasonable cause to suspect a child is suffering abuse, abandonment or neglect must report it? However, many adults lack the knowledge it takes to spot red flags and report such incidents. The Monique Burr Foundation is proud to partner with Gulf Coast Kid’s House by offering prevention education to parents and Safe Adults alike to businesses, day care centers, churches, summer camps and any place else where children may be exposed to risk.

What They're Saying...

The MBF Teen Safety Matters curriculum hosts an in-depth approach to important social and safety concerns relevant to youth. The program content is age-appropriate with engaging activities, jargon, and realistic situations to positively promote a relatable and impacting learning experience…Teen Safety Matters is an educational benefit to all parties involved – students, parents, facilitators, and schools.

There’s not a child in the world who can’t benefit from this program. There are so many instances where we see children who have been damaged and hurt. Things happened to them and we think, if they’d only had this program, if they’d only had the benefit of this education, that might not have happened to them. If we can prevent that from happening to a single child, then it’s worth all the effort we have put forth.

I heard about the program through my son. He came home…and showed me the safety rules. I cannot thank the Foundation enough; to have other people who are also concerned about my child’s safety and the safety of other kids is wonderful. I especially like the program’s focus on the prevention side.
