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.
Thank you Tour DeWitt!
The June 25th Tour DeWitt cycling event, was filled with individulas who seek to make a difference in the lives of children. Their hard work raised an amazing $5091 for the Child Protection Network. We are so grateful for their dedication to the CPN mission to help children who've been abused and neglected in our community. THANK YOU TOUR DeWITT!

"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."
