April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities who work together to prevent child abuse and neglect. VOA Illinois is dedicated to providing the children we serve with a safe, nurturing, and happy home. Pinwheels are the national symbol that represent hope for every child to grow up in a home free of abuse and neglect. 

Will you join us by helping to raise awareness and funds for the children we serve in our child welfare services program? All funds raised will go directly to helping provide brighter future for the children we serve.
