Where Nurture and Protection Come Together

The latest from Susie’s Place

A child named Kaylee

A child we’ll call Kaylee attends a Susie’s Place-facilitated body safety program at school. She grows uncomfortable and checks yes for a follow-up conversation.

Over 5,000 adults will be trained this year to spot the signs of abuse.

The Stewards of Children training instructed by Susie’s Place staff trains adult caregivers, parents, teachers, coaches, and everyone willing to stand up against child abuse. It’s free and available regularly in communities around Indiana.

Online safety

New games, apps, and chat services are hard to keep up with. That’s why we’ve developed five simple tips for online safety parents and caregivers can use to keep their kids and teens safe.

You can also use these tips to start a conversation with your child.

We’re on a mission

Susie’s Place promotes the prevention, justice, and healing of child victims of abuse and violence while maintaining the comfort and safety of the child as the first priority.

Our vision is to strengthen our community’s ability to nurture and protect children.
