The D2L Mission: To Empower People to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse
D2L programs raise awareness of the prevalence and consequences of child sexual abuse by educating adults about the steps they can take to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to the reality of child sexual abuse.
As a community partner, Children’s Voice: CASA offers Darkness to Light Stewards of Children Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training for organizations. Children’s Voice: CASA has a facilitator for this effective child sexual abuse prevention program. Parents and all youth serving organizations will benefit from this knowledge to protect children.

It is a privilege and honor to work with someone who exhibits this degree of passion for children and families as well as professionalism in working to collaboratively achieve permanency.”
