Nonprofits that serve vulnerable populations (including children, the elderly and persons with disabilities) work hard to deliver vital services without inadvertently causing harm. Yet in addition to working hard to prevent harm, every nonprofit that works with vulnerable clients should develop a plan of action in the event the unthinkable happens. This Webinar provides a frank discussion of what an organization must do (and must not do) when responding to allegations of abuse. Research and other evidence has clearly demonstrated that how an organization reacts to allegations plays a major role in the cost and consequences of any subsequent claims filed by alleged victims.
