  • Guardians of the Children Pinwheel Project

In April, the GFWC IL Morgan Park Junior Woman's Club will join thousands of other communities, organizations and individuals across the nation, and specifically joining the Prevent Child Abuse Illinois' Campaign, to raise awareness of child abuse, to build effective services and to strengthen families.

Pinwheels for child abuse prevention.

Child Abuse Prevention Month is meant to serve as a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities coming together to prevent child abuse and neglect and to promote the emotional wellbeing of children.

Ellis said the project is also to highlight and honor the kids that have been through the program. "We are encouraging churches to somehow incorporate child abuse prevention in their services, whether that is wearing blue or donning blue ribbons or talking about child abuse in some way".

Each read a proclamation encouraging residents to make a positive difference in the lives of children.

The theme of this Child Abuse Prevention Month is "Everyone Has a Role to Play".

I am in awe of the foster families whose human capacity for love and tenacity helps those children get better. In 2015, DCS substantiated 19 cases of sexual abuse, 12 cases of physical abuse and 114 cases of neglect in Decatur County alone.

"It's to bring awareness to child abuse - all forms of child abuse - and to let everybody know that prevention is possible", said Holly Line, the director of Butts County's DFCS office.
