A SAFE COMMUNITY
We affirm the dignity of all people and take seriously the responsibility to protect the vulnerable and create a safe community for all.
PROTECTION OF CHILDREN
Incarnation is committed to the safety and protection of our youngest members. All staff, vestry, and children's volunteers have cleared a thorough background check and have been trained in child-safety practices and abide by our child-protection policy.
HARASSMENT AND ABUSE
Incarnation strives to create and maintain an environment in which attendees, guests, volunteers, and employees are treated with dignity, decency, and respect. The environment of Incarnation should be characterized by mutual trust and the absence of intimidation, oppression and exploitation. Employees should be able to work in a safe and enjoyable atmosphere; likewise, attendees and guests should be able to worship safely and enjoy all aspects of Incarnation Anglican free from harassment. The accomplishment of this goal is essential to the mission of the community. For that reason, Incarnation abides by an anti-harassment policy. Read the entire policy here.
TRAUMA AND TRAUMA SAFETY
Incarnation strives to understand the complex nature of trauma, to provide trauma-informed pastoral care, and to create a trauma-safe environment for survivors. We affirm the content of this white paper and abide by its four guidelines of Protection, Listening, Empowerment, and the Body: Sexual Abuse and Trauma-Safety: A Biblical and Theological Reflection.
