Congratulations to Lumpkin County, Georgia, for reaching the Tipping Point! By training 5 percent of their population in Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children prevention program, they’ve joined a host of other regions, counties, and states that are taking a stand against child sexual abuse.
Lumpkin County’s number is 1,186. What’s yours?

Lumpkin County also was the first school system in Georgia and the 2nd in the country to train 100% of all staff, including bus drives and cafeteria workers. In addition, all but 1 daycare in the county has trained all their staff and we just completed the training for all staff and volunteer coaches in Park and Rec. So from the time a child enters daycare to when they graduate from high school in this county, they will have stewards of children leading and teaching them. That is just a glimpse of what cultural change looks like in this county. More could be told.
That is wonderful! Lumpkin County’s dedication to the well-being of their children is very evident.
