GRACE, Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment, works to train Christian communities to "recognize, prevent, and respond to child abuse," providing prevention training and policies, consultations and response protocols, independent investigations, and resources to "educate and assist churches in being prepared to avoid problems, and to address the offence of child abuse if it occurs."

Based in the UK, ThirtyOne:Eight provides a variety of services from training, policy support and investigations to risk assessments, case reviews and a 24-hour helpline in their mission to protect vulnerable people from abuse. Additionally, they provide a "listening service" which allows victims to tell their story and talk through their experiences.

Care Corps International is a "crisis care education resource ministry for caregivers in places of crisis, war, and disaster," providing crisis care education by sending teams to work with care givers already serving in the crisis-stricken area.

Open Hearts Ministry trains people "to cultivate communities of care where stories of pain and abuse can be spoken, heard and redeemed." Their materials, designed to be used in small group settings, have been translated into Arabic, Mandarin, and Spanish and are available as PDFs for those living outside the US.

Hot Peach Pages contain a list of sexual abuse and domestic violence agencies all over the world and abuse information in over 115 languages. 

Diane Langberg, on her website, lists a variety of recommended resources for responding to abuse. Her own books are an excellent place to start:

Suffering and the Heart of God: How Trauma Destroys and Christ Restores

Redeeming Power: Understanding Authority and Abuse in the Church

On the Threshold of Hope: Opening the Door to Healing for Survivors of Sexual Abuse

Counseling Survivors of Sexual Abuse
