 This is a non-event that allows you to support our goal of preventing child abuse and neglect in our community!

Together we can prevent a shadow of abuse from being cast on a child's life.
Where: Anywhere you please!
Tell us on Facebook what you did with your family this month.
1. 1/3 of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children, continuing the horrible cycle of abuse.  Crittenton Centers completed 665 home visits in FY15. Home visits are a proven prevention strategy for breaking the destructive cycles of abuse and neglect.                  
2. 1,336 substantiated cases of child abuse are on file in Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford County in 2014. Crisis Nursery accepted over 5,800 admissions in FY15 with 99% of parents reporting they experienced crisis resolution with assistance from the Crisis Nursery.
3. You can purchase tickets to our non-event. You can help us prevent a parental crisis from becoming a child's crisis. Every child deserves emergency respite care and the opportunity to be safe.   
4. A gift of $100 will support 1 hour of fully staffed, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, Crisis Nursery care we provide to families in our community.
