Prevent Child Abuse Illinois envisions an Illinois where all children grow up in healthy nurturing homes and communities free of child abuse, neglect, violence or endangerment of any kind. Since 1990 we have provided key leadership in this effort, working with individual, organizations and communities in Illinois.
We work to protect children and strengthen families through public awareness, education, advocacy, community assistance and promoting hands-on support to new parents and families.
Child abuse is one of the most tragic social issues of our time. It affects the lives of millions of children and their families with staggering social and economic costs to us all. But we can succeed...in stopping this epidemic.
We are making a difference! Today more people are aware of the signs of abuse and neglect and are reporting it. Parents and guardians are changing the way they talk to and treat their children and are involved in more activities that support families and children.
There is still more to do and with your help we can prevent child abuse!
