Prevent Child Abuse Illinois
Prevent Child Abuse Illinois is the chartered state chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America.  Prevent Child Abuse Illinois works to protect children and strengthen families through public awareness, education, advocacy, community assistance, and promoting hands-on support to new parents and families.

Illinois Department of Children and Family Services
Founded in 1964, DCFS has the primary responsibility of protecting children and strengthening families through the investigation and intervention of suspected child abuse or neglect by parents and other caregivers.  DCFS offers and coordinates services wherever needed to help children remain in their homes safely.  In instances where children must be removed from the home for their safety and well-being, DCFS makes every effort to return them safely to their homes as quickly as possible.  When that simply is not possible, DCFS is equally committed to pursuing adoption by loving families to provide children with the permanent, safe and nurturing homes they need and deserve to reach their fullest potential.
