DCFS Launches Anti-Child Abuse Campaign
The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is launching a new statewide campaign aimed at stopping child abuse and neglect.
The You are Not Alone campaign lets children know that help is available at DCFS' child abuse hotline.
The department is asking all school superintendents and private school organizations to partner in the effort and distribute 25,000 posters to schools across the state.
Department officials said one in five children are abused or neglected before the age of 18, and 70 percent of child abuse goes unreported.
