The Children’s Advocacy Center of East Central Illinois. The center, which serves Coles, Clark, Cumberland, Douglas, Edgar, Effingham, Fayette, Jasper, Moultrie and Shelby counties, provides a neutral child-friendly environment for interviews for kids involved in abuse investigations.
They facilitate support for child victims and their families, and accompany them to medical appointments and court when needed. The staff also partners with law enforcement, child protection, mental health, medical, and state’s attorney’s to assist in investigations. The center is currently seeking donations to support their work, specifically to assist in paying for the remainder of a loan that was used to purchase recording equipment essential to child forensic interviewing.
Please visit their Facebook page to make a donation to their GoFundMe fundraiser. https://www.facebook.com/Childrens-Advocacy-Center-of-East-Central-Illinois-274249592621/
In addition, they’re looking for guys with culinary skills for the major fundraiser, Men Who Cook, coming up in February.
Please support these champions for children, The Children’s Advocacy Center of East Central Illinois.
