Province Reaccredited by Praesidium

New Rochelle Province
Reaccredited by Praesidium

On March 8 the St. Philip Province of the Salesians of Don Bosco (based in New Rochelle) announced that Praesidium has renewed our accreditation as an institution dedicated to providing safe environments for the young people and vulnerable adults under our care. The New Rochelle Province was found to be in compliance with the highest current national standards for protecting children and adolescents. The province has acted upon the call to more accountability and transparency in how to protect children and adolescents, handle allegations of sexual abuse, reach out to victims, and supervise members who have sexually abused.

During the period of this reaccreditation, the New Rochelle Province will uphold fundamental values and stringent safety practices that demonstrate our commitment to protecting those whom we serve from abuse.
