Dove's Nest's mission is to empower and equip faith communities to keep children and youth safe in their homes, churches, and communities. "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children" (Luke 18:16 NLT).
Child and Youth Protection Policies
A child and youth protection policy in a faith community helps to ensure safety for children and youth. Dove's Nest recommends that every faith community develop and implement a policy suited to its context.
