HARRISBURG—SafeSecureKids.org, a joint partnership between d’Vinci Interactive and Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR), received a silver Horizon Interactive Award in the Advocacy/Non-Profit Website category.
SafeSecureKids.org is a free educational resource designed to help parents, teachers and caregivers keep children safe from sexual abuse. The website features helpful resources, videos and an interactive game, to help adults have important conversations with children about bodies, boundaries, and consent. New resources for caregivers and learning activities for kids to learn about feelings are in production and will be available soon.
“We are very proud to be recognized for our work on SafeSecureKids.org,” said Karen Baker, CEO of PCAR. “We hope that by using these resources, more people will talk about, set, and respect boundaries in order to help reduce the number of people who are harassed and abused, ultimately creating a world where kids are happy and healthy and safe.”
SafeSecureKids.org is supported in part by The Commonwealth of PA, The Hershey Company, Penn State Health and Highmark. Learn more about supporting this project to keep children safe, happy and free from sexual abuse.
