Kid Safety Initiative Starts Sunday

The Safety Kid initiative in Crown Heights to fight and prevent child abuse will be launching this week with 2 events. Each child will be receiving a special kit.

Notice by Crown Heights Parent Safety Alliance and Merkos Chinuch Office:

Three days, packed with 9 Different Workshops for 3,000 children, 400 Teachers, 1,500 parents, 50 mental health professionals, dozens of school administrators and more. Safety Kid is coming to town!

Beginning this Sunday, as a community we will address the safety of our precious children. The introduction of the Safety Kid program in our schools will form a unique partnership between schools and families to create a safer Crown Heights for our children.

The goal of the conference is to raise awareness, teach skills and empower our children to make positive decisions about their personal safety using Safety Kidís ABCís of Safety.

Ask for Help
Bring a friend
Check first
Do Tell

Safety Kid Child Safety program was created and developed by the Aleinu Family Resource Center, a program of Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles. We are thrilled to welcome three professionals from Aleinu who will be arriving in Crown Heights to run the workshops at this conference.

Different workshops are prepared for all involved. All teachers, from all local schools, boys and girls, will attend a two hour workshop that will help ensure safety for both students and staff. School administrators will cover safety protocols, handling allegations, and creating a safer school environment for our children.

The Parent workshop, being offered twice to enable all parents to join, will be informative and offer practical advice for keeping children safe, as well as review warning signs.

Most importantly, 25 volunteers including parents and mental health professionals will take a full three day training course to become certified Safety Kid Educators!

After this intense training they will go into the classrooms and present The Safety Kidís ABCís of Safety. Topics include what to do when lost, never go alone; bring a friend, to say NO! when put in an uncomfortable situation and much more.

The interactive presentations, which use videos, puppetry and more, are a fun and effective way to instill these life saving lessons. Each child will come home with their own Safety Kid Kit to review with their parent what they have learnt.

VID CAMS
This is a great idea. Lets kick off security in Crown Heights with vid cams all around the shechuna. It is a very big detterant and helps catch culprits.

A VERY CONCERNED PARENT
I would just like to make parents who live in buildings aware of he danger of leaving children alone for even a small time frame with a neighbor who has your baby call/monitor ,yes they will hear your child cry but will be unaware of a fire until it is ch'v too late.
If the fire/smoke won"t consume the children ch'v
the authorities definitely will!

How about building lobbys?
How about the parent's who let kids play in the lobby and run to neighbors in the other section of the buildings unsupervised?

Spirituality says that you need to take care of your body first so,that you can take care of your soul. They are broken insideand feel alone. I commend whoever is taking a stand in making a difference for frum communities who need it most! Thank you! if you want to f only we'd realize that their spirituality is only suffering because they don't have a body to perform it. They are broken inside, and
