This is a five-part series for April, Child Abuse Prevention Month. It is the perfect time to reflect, review, and remind everyone of the Archdiocese of Miami’s commitment to the Protection of Children and Young People as per the Bishops’ Charter through its own Safe Environment Policy. It began with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ meeting in Dallas of 2002 and continues to this day. The ADOM, with 102 churches, 5 missions, 1 shrine, 56 brick and mortar schools and 1 virtual school, as well as Catholic Charities and Catholic Health Services has worked diligently from the very beginning to provide awareness of the nature of abuse and the tools for prevention of abuse by creating policies and changing processes for the sole purpose of protecting the most vulnerable among us. The ADOM also includes vulnerable adults in their policies for protection. The goal is to change the hearts, minds, and behaviors, regarding this crime. For more on the ADOM Office of Safe Environment’s efforts please visit our website at www.miamiarch.org under the Protecting God’s Children Ministry.
This is a five-part series for April, Child Abuse Prevention Month. The monumental task of protecting the most vulnerable among us can only be done with an army of angels. We call them Local Coordinators. They stand as the first line of protection and perhaps more than anyone else are a catalyst for changing hearts, minds and behaviors regarding the crime of child abuse. They are the people carefully selected at our parishes, schools, and entities to oversee compliance and record keeping of the Safe Environment Policy for their site. Get to know the Local Coordinator at your site and you will see they are dedicated, credible, and trustworthy stewards for this mission.

This is a five-part series for April, Child Abuse Prevention Month. It is an opportunity to share the efforts made all year long to protect the most vulnerable among us. A significant part of this effort is the continuous work of Local Coordinator. They serve as a liaison between pastor/principal/director and the employees, parents, and volunteers at all ADOM entities. They communicate the commitment to child protection and the tangible steps to ensure it. This means fostering a sense of teamwork and a multifaceted playbook including background checks through fingerprinting every five years. Virtus training, which is an educational awareness and prevention program beginning with initial training and followed up with monthly bulletins thereafter. The last component is a signed Pledge to Promote Safe Environment, which is similar to a code of conduct. These requirements, in word and deed, illuminate the scope and nature of abuse and the necessity for changing hearts, minds, and behavior to prevent this crime at ADOM entities.
