At The Body Safety Box, the purpose of our work is to help children grown and develop unhindered into the fullness of their unique and precious design.
We live out our purpose by creating research-based educational experiences for children and families that are joy-filled, practical, and easily applicable. Our primary focus centers on meeting children’s social and emotional needs and their personal safety which are typically under addressed in both homes and schools. The Body Safety Box has served children in 32 states, Canada, Africa, India, and Papua New Guinea to date.
