Hands Around the Courthouse

Sept. 19 event intends to increase awareness of local child abuse and neglect

HENNEPIN —áThe 10th Judicial Circuit Family Violence Coordinating Council will host the “Hands Around the Courthouse” event at noon Thursday, Sept. 19, in front of the Putnam County Courthouse in Hennepin.

The intent of the event is to help bring awareness to area children who’ve suffered abuse and neglect and who are in the court systems of the surrounding counties. A few words will be spoken by collaborating partners to address the role of the community in helping these children and their families involved in the court system. This will be a collaboration between Freedom House, CASA, Youth Services Bureau of the Illinois Valley, and the Putnam County Church.
