April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
Mar 27, 2017 5:06 PM -
In honor of National Child Abuse Prevention Month CASA of DuPage County, Inc. is issuing a call to action for residents and businesses of DuPage to stand against child abuse and take action to support children who have been abused or neglected. At any given time, there are nearly 300 DuPage children in juvenile court due to abuse, neglect or dependency. These children come into the child welfare system through no fault of their own and need support and advocacy while their case is in the court system. Last year, a case was open for 39 months on average.
