The Child Protection Network is a 501c3 organization that supports the work of the Children's Advocacy Center and the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) programs in their quest to protect children. We believe that every child has the right to a home free of abuse and neglect.
We support the Children's Advocacy Centers in Mclean, Livingston, and Dewitt Counties in their endeavor to investigate crimes against children and provide support to innocent family members.
And the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program that recruits and trains community volunteers to be a voice for children placed in the foster care system.
In The News
Our local community is amazing. They've proven it time and time again with their support of the important mission of the Child Protection Network. On that note and again for 2016, the Tour DeWitt organization is hosting their well-attended cycling event to support the work of the Child Protection Network and the DeWitt County Children's Advocacy Center. The needs of child victims are continual, and we are fortunate to have a community that supports those needs. Come join us at Tour DeWitt and help reach the youngest in need, right here in our community!
Tour DeWitt 2016 will be held on Saturday, June 25th and offers a 9, 22, 40 and 62 mile route through DeWitt County. Perfect for beginners and experts alike! Each route begins and ends at the Clinton United Methodist Church, 308 Main Street, Clinton, IL. Once you've burned all of those calories, fuel up with a delicious after-race pasta meal for only $7.00. Provided by the Clinton United Methodist Men's group, meals will be ready from 10:30am to 1:00pm and will be served at the Clinton United Methodist Church. Meals may be purchased at registration.

"Children have a right to feel safe, loved, and cared for. They also have the undeniable right to learn, grow, and become the people they are destined to be. "
"No child should have to stand alone. Kids in foster care need a voice. You can help... become a CASA."
“Being a CASA is like opening my heart to allow those who are hurt to heal.” A CASA once said, “You start out to change a child’s life and find you’ve also changed your own.”
"It’s everyone’s job to protect children. Each day at the Child Protection Network, abused and neglected children find Hope and Healing."
"Thank you for joining us in standing up for kids!"
"Powerless children need powerful voices."
