The 7th Annual Support In The Shadows

 Support in the Shadows invite

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

When: April 1st - 30th!
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.


  • There were 1036 substantiated cases of child abuse in Peoria County in 2017
  • 1/3 of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children, continuing the horrible cycle of abuse.
  • Last year, Crittenton Centers’ Crisis Nursery had more than 5,000 admissions


  You can help us prevent a parental crisis from becoming a child’s crisis. Every child deserves emergency respite care, to stay with their families, and the opportunity to be safe.

A gift of $100 will support 1 hour of the 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, Crisis Nursery Care we provide to families in our community.
