PREA Compliance at Catholic Charities Family and Community Services

PREA Compliance

Family and Community Services maintains zero tolerance towards all forms of institutional and community based sexual abuse and harassment. Measures have been developed and implemented in order to prevent, detect and respond to sexual abuse and sexual harassment conduct. This policy is applicable to the governing body, all facility employees and all residents under facility supervision, volunteers, contractors, interns, visitors, and to all those individuals and groups that conduct business with or use resources of the company.

Catholic Charities Family and Community Services has successfully passed a PREA audit of the agency's Dubois Residential Program, our Community-Based Residential Program, in 2021. The audits assess compliance with the PREA standards for Community Confinement developed by the United States Department of Justice. The standards are available online at the National PREA Resource Center.
