Churches receive help to prevent sexual and other abuse
Everence creates new Safe Church Grant.
Everence® supports churches in protecting children, teens and vulnerable individuals from harm with the Safe Church Grant. This grant became available to churches on July 1st.
This grant helps to reimburse churches for costs they incur to keep people in their care safe from sexual or other forms of abuse. Churches can receive help from organizations such as Dove's Nest or GRACE, although, Everence doesn’t endorse any particular consultant.
Everence supports the healthy development of churches as they contribute to the good spiritual and emotional health of their attendees. The grant can be used to develop policies, train people or implement programs within their church ministries.
Churches with an Everence Stewardship Advocate may apply for the one-time (non-matching) grant of up to $350 to reimburse churches for program expenses incurred within the last 12 months to protect children, teens or others from sexual, physical, emotional/psychological or other forms of abuse.
