SUPPORTING MULTI-DISCIPLINARY TEAMS,
STRENGTHENING CASES, SECURING CONVICTIONS, PROVIDING HOPE
Where we’ve been
where we’re going
Supporting the backbone of communities:
Building Hope Today provides nationwide childhood sexual abuse training in grooming and delayed disclosure, victim advocacy and care, prevention and multi-disciplinary team effectiveness.
We assemble experts, provide support, foster collaboration, change the results, and change the statistics.
Let us explain…
Five percent. That’s all. Only Five percent of the reported cases of child sex crimes end in conviction.
Why is that?
How do we help?
No matter how long a child waits to disclose, multi-disciplinary teams can prove sexual abuse occurred when grooming is present.
Building Hope Today provides nationwide childhood sexual abuse training by leading experts in grooming and delayed disclosure, victim advocacy and care, prevention and multi-disciplinary team effectiveness. Cases involving children are particularly difficult and unpredictable. We help multi-disciplinary teams navigate the special nuances involving cases with children. Our training focuses on offenders’ grooming techniques and behaviors that can be used as corroborative evidence.
Why is this the work of a nonprofit?
Aren’t trainings covered by taxpayer dollars? No! So many communities across the nation have limited budgets and do not have access to specialist trainings. We seek donations from our generous community to cover our costs, to fill the gap and meet this vital need.
One Police Captain said: “We rely on courses like this one to keep us current on investigative and prosecutorial trends facing these very important cases. We appreciate having an opportunity to hear from experts in the field, here, in our home town.”
What does our training look like?
MDT TRAINING (TWO DAY/ONE DAY)
We specialize in offering two-day or one-day training events for multi-disciplinary teams.
A team of Building Hope Today subject-matter experts present techniques and collaborative practices designed to improve effectiveness in all dimensions of child sex abuse investigation, prosecution, and victim care.
We provide seasoned multi-disciplinary team consultants to MDT clients who want to address a variety of matters
needed to establish, improve, or customize their organization’s effectiveness.
We take a victim-centered, trauma-informed approach to our multi-disciplinary team assessment work.
We build a relationship with our MDT clients to examine effectiveness: reviewing policies and protocols, conducting site visits and interviews, and preparing a report with interactive action plan.

“All the information [in today’s training] was really important. It was like being hit in the face with a sledgehammer. After going through what we did today, it made us realize that in cases, even ones where we were able to get an omission from the suspect, having the foundation of grooming that built up to the abuse would have solidified a case ten times more in front of a jury. If you can build a case with the steps of grooming [we learned here], a case would have a solid case for conviction even without an omission.”
