Local Groups Unite for Child Abuse Prevention Month


CHAMPAIGN - You may start seeing a lot of blue symbols around Champaign County this month.

It's the color for Child Abuse Prevention Month, wherein local advocacy groups are joining up to raise awareness.

Rush Record, Executive Director of Champaign County CASA says they see up to 75 new cases of child abuse each year.

Abuse can range from lack of supervision to actual physical or sexual abuse.

If you suspect a child is the victim of neglect or abuse, you are urged to call 1-800-25-ABUSE or your local law enforcement agency.
