■ Child Safety Workshop
Our award-winning workshops use Kids On The Block, Inc. puppets to provide children with safety information. The workshops give children the skills they need to recognize, resist and report abuse. They teach children about safe, unsafe and confusing touch. In addition, the children explore the difference between abuse and discipline and learn to trust their instincts if they feel they are in danger.
■ Lighthouse Clothes Closet
A project in partnership with the Safe Horizon Jane Barker Brooklyn Child Advocacy Center. It provides necessities to children who may be displaced because of abusive situations.
