Children who have been victims of abuse need people who care for them as people, not as case files. Children and their families receive this care and concern at the Macon County Child Advocacy Center.
Here is a safe child-friendly place where children are interviewed. They find a home-like atmosphere, away from the cold intimidating walls of the police station.

It is with regret that we announce effecitve June 30, 2014, the Macon County Safe from the Start project will no longer be providing services to Macon and Piatt counties. Signigicant budget cuts have made it no longer feasible to continue the Safe from the Start project. We have enjoyed providing services to children 0-5 who have been exposed to violence these past 11 years and greatly appreciate your support of the project.
