What Is PLEDGE TO PREVENT ?
“All children deserve great childhoods, and we all have a role to play.” This quote has informed and inspired the work of Prevent Child Abuse Illinois (PCA Illinois) for more than 30 years. PCA Illinois envisions an Illinois where all children grow up in healthy, nurturing homes and communities free of abuse, neglect, violence or endangerment of any kind, and you can help. Over the years, individuals, families and organizations like yours have made gifts to PCA Illinois to support our programs and to make caring for children a priority. It takes all of us to lay a solid foundation on which to build safe communities and strong families.
Please, consider making a donation to Prevent Child Abuse Illinois with your 2020 year-end dollars. Donating to PCA Illinois will provide parent education, community training, prevention materials and much more. Here are some things your donations can do to help children in need:
A $15 gift will buy a swaddling wrap for a newborn and train expectant parents 5 techniques for calming a crying baby. Crying is the number one trigger for shaken baby syndrome.
A $50 gift will provide a training such as the Effects of Childhood Trauma or the Effects of Domestic Violence to 30 professionals working with Illinois families.
A $100 gift can purchase 10 Stewards of Children workbooks used to train parents, teachers and other adults how to prevent and respond to child sexual abuse.
Your donation is one more brick, one more step, one more commitment to building safe homes and nurturing families. After all, children are our future. By helping parents learn how to be good parents, by training all adults on the critical issues that impact families, and by sharing tools for success we all win. Please consider making a year-end gift today to sustain the programs and services offered by Prevent Child Abuse Illinois.

Thank you again for your support, and we wish you a very happy and healthy holiday season and New Year.
