Menlo Church Assessment Final Report

Assessment of Menlo Church’s Response to a Congregant Expressing an Attraction to Children

In December of 2020, Zero Abuse Project entered into a contract with Menlo Church to assess whether a former volunteer, who had confided to having an attraction to children, had engaged in any acts of sexual misconduct. Zero Abuse interviewed 104 witnesses and reviewed or analyzed more than 500,000 documents. The Final Report provides the findings of our Assessment, as well as recommendations to improve Menlo’s child protection policies.
