Collaborating and responding to our community's needs has long been a hallmark of the Child Abuse Council. We are proud of our strong partnerships and honored to support the work of many others building a resilient and successful community for our children to thrive in!
Each one of the programs works hand in hand with a volunteer advisory council. The purpose of each advisory council is to provide cross-disciplinary expertise, technical assistance, resource sharing and guidance for strengthening and developing the programs; to ensure high quality services and to advise the program manager on coordination of new programs as community needs emerge. Advisory Councils are made up of community professionals in a variety of areas. Focus areas for recruitment include experts in some of the following areas: substance abuse treatment, rape and sexual assault treatment, early education, schools, mental health, physical health, law enforcement, parent, community members, local government.
All Our Kids
Another way to honor our commitment to community is through the All Our Kids (AOK) Network.
The Rock Island County All Our Kids Network will ensure services for children 0-5 are collaborative, comprehensive and reflect our community need. The AOK Coordinator will provide leadership, structure and support to prioritize partnerships and addressing barriers to ensure healthy starts for children in our community.
