Silver Cross Hospital employees recently donated over 100 new teddy bears and plush toys for the Will County Children's Advocacy Center as part of the hospital’s annual teddy bear collection during the month of May.

These teddy bears will be given to children who are victims of a crime or assault. The Will County Children's Advocacy Center, which provides counseling and prevention education, allows victims to choose a new teddy bear to aid in healing.
 
About The Will County Children's Advocacy Center

The Will County Children's Advocacy Center and MDT partners are the front-line responders to reports of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse of children, ages 3 to 17, in Will County.

In 1995, Will County State’s Attorney James W. Glasgow, established the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center as a 501(c)3 charitable organization, in order to improve the integrity of all investigations into allegations of child sexual abuse, while providing hope, healing and justice for the children and their families.

Prior to opening the Will County CAC, children who suffered sexual abuse were required to make multiple statements to numerous parties, including law enforcement, child welfare workers and medical professionals, thereby increasing their trauma and enabling predators to exploit minor differences in their various statements.
