Child welfare advocates calling for Illinoisans to get involved in Child Abuse Prevention Month

ILLINOIS (RFD) — National Child Abuse Prevention Month is underway with child welfare advocates calling for Illinoisans to get involved in ensuring the welfare of kids in peril. A recent Office of Inspector General report has revealed that in the past two years, 98 children involved with DCFS have died.

Safe Families For Children Downstate Director Ryan Mobley says there are some positive developments in the fight against child abuse.

He notes DCFS can’t do it alone.

The recent interim director at DCFS said the agency needs to reduce caseloads and and lawmakers like Senator Andy Manar have called for the agency to refocus more of its effort on helping children in peril.
