Safety and Security

Our Safety and Security Purpose Statement:

People of Hope seeks to create a space of empowerment for all people and particularly youth.  In this place of safety and security we hope all people will be able to express and experience their lives, their joys and their sorrows, to share how they may have been violated by someone outside of POH or within the POH community, and to explore who God is.  


Why is a Safety and Security Policy necessary?

To affirm, protect, and empower children, youth, adults and vulnerable adults.  

To affirm, protect, and empower volunteers and staff.  

To raise awareness.  

To be a leader and advocate in our community.  

To equip the community of POH with the tools to live a God-centered life.
