The Lombard Jr. Women's Club recently attended a Village Board Meeting to help raise awareness of Child Abuse Prevention Month.

In response, Lombard Village President Keith Giagnorio presented a proclamation, in order to call attention to the cause.

The Proclamation reads:

PROCLAMATION: CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH

WHEREAS, child abuse prevention is a community problem and finding solutions depends
on involvement among people throughout the community; and

WHEREAS, statistics of children who are abused and neglected escalate each year and in
DuPage County the number of reported child abuse cases was over 3,300 in
2011; and

WHEREAS, the effects of child abuse are felt by whole communities, and need to be
addressed by the entire community; and

WHEREAS, effective child abuse prevention programs succeed because of partnerships
created among the courts, social service agencies, schools, religious
organizations, law enforcement agencies, and the business community; and

WHEREAS, youth-serving prevention programs offer positive alternatives for young
people and encourage youth to develop strong ties to their community; and

WHEREAS, all citizens should become more aware of child abuse and its prevention within
the community, and to become involved in supporting parents to raise their
children in a safe, nurturing environment;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Keith Giagnorio, Village President of the Village of Lombard, do hereby
proclaim April 2016 as CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH in Lombard and call
upon all residents, community agencies, religious organizations, medical
facilities, and businesses to increase their participation in our efforts to prevent
child abuse, thereby strengthening the communities in which we live.
