The Child Protection Network (CPN) is a 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to provide financial resources that support the treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect.

 

CPN supports 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.

 

Currently, the primary focus of CPN is to provide support to local CASA programs and services. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Before being assigned responsibilities, CASA volunteers undergo a thorough background check, participate in a 40 hour training course. In addition, ongoing continuing education and in-service participation is required after accepting a CASA volunteer position.

 

Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.

 

During the past year 123 children right here in our community received advocacy services from CASA’s who provided over 8,400 service hours related to 362 separate court hearings.
