Join Hands, Help Children

Apr 11, 2017

Help raise awareness of child abuse by joining "Hands Around the Courthouse" on Friday, April 21, at noon in the Peoria County Courthouse Plaza. April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and the Youth Services Network Panel is hosting its Tenth Annual Hands Around the Courthouse event to draw attention to the 951 pending child abuse and neglect cases in Peoria County. During the event, advocacy officials will say a few words about the unfortunate cases still pending and the importance of child abuse prevention. Illinois Department of Children and Family Services Director George Sheldon will speak at the event.

"Hands Around the Courthouse" participants are encouraged to wear blue to show their support of Child Abuse Prevention Month. For more information about the event, please call Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) at 309-669-2939.
