Awareity is a comprehensive platform for reporting, tracking, and documenting incidents and concerns, making it simple and confidential to share red flag behaviors such as:
- Boundary issues
- Threats of violence
- Concerning behavior by clergy, staff, or volunteers
- Anything that you may find stressful or out of the ordinary and feel compelled to bring forward regarding clergy, staff, or volunteers
The goal of Awareity is prevention and to help identify red flags and warning signs before an incident occurs or escalates.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not an emergency reporting system. If this is an urgent matter, please immediately dial 911.
How do I make a report?
If you want to report a concern, please click on the Awareity Incident Report button (green butterfly icon), or Click Here.
Is the report really anonymous?
Yes! Reporters can remain truly anonymous if they choose, so they have nothing to fear in sharing their concerns. However, we cannot guarantee we can follow-up unless we have your name and a way to contact you by either phone or email.
Once a report is submitted what happens?
All reports are securely transmitted to and stored within the Awareity platform. Immediate notifications are sent to the appropriate personnel, and reports are only accessible by approved personnel. Once the team has reviewed your report/concerns, appropriate investigation and follow-up efforts will occur.
Do I have to use the form to make a report?
No. You are still welcome and encouraged to speak directly with a team member at (920) 272-8174 if you have concerns. Awareity should in no way replace face-to-face communication, but instead help our community share information when someone is less comfortable sharing it in person.
How can I share the Awareity reporting tool with my parish, school, or ministry?
Actively promoting Awareity and providing ongoing awareness through posters, announcements, etc., can help ensure all staff, volunteers, parents, and visitors understand how they can play an active role in keeping your community safe. We have a number of ways to promote and share about Awareity including a flyer, poster, bulletin inserts and graphics, as well as a button for your website that links directly to the Awareity reporting tool.
