Faith Based Organizations

Welcome to the iKeepSafe resource page for faith-based organizations (FBOs). These resources have been specifically designed to be customized for your organization. The presentations are offered in ppt format, so you can add/delete slides and insert your name, title, and graphics. For your convenience, we included some scripture, drawing on the Old and New Testaments from The King James Version of the Bible. These can be augmented or deleted easily to fit the needs of your congregation/synagogue.

FBOs are in a unique position of trust in a community. Your message of encouragement will give parents the added confidence they need to become the technology leaders in their home.

“As the Director of the Center for Faith Based and community Initiatives at the Department of Health & Human Services (2005 to 2008), I recognize that religious leaders can help families with the challenging issues they encounter. Our youth benefit when parents understand the risks involved with digital products. Though we want young people to have 21st century skills, families need to be alert and promote responsible, safe behavior. I endorse and highly encourage faith communities to utilize the free FBO Internet safety presentations on the website.”
