PCAVT Healthy Relationships Project:

FCCTF is the designated child abuse prevention agency in Franklin County. We see the prevention of child sexual abuse as of the utmost importance. The developmentally targeted PCAVT Healthy Relationships Project utilizes health-focused strategies that match children and youth’s social-emotional level and increase protective factors such as communication skills, empathy and knowledge of support systems, eliminating the messaging that puts the burden on children to protect themselves without regard to both the developmental levels of children and the dynamics of abuse.

Digital Citizenship/Internet Safety:

This program is designed for parents, students, and educators and is intended to inform them of the challenges presented by the ever-increasing use of the Internet by young adults. Using a series of strategies, the program is delivered in schools through individual classroom and group presentations, and is also offered to school personnel. Presentations for parents are delivered upon request at prearranged Internet Safety Nights throughout Franklin County.
