Child Network was established in 1994 as the Children’s Advocacy Center.
The agency focus was on serving sexually abused children in Kankakee County. In 1999, the agency broadened its mission to include volunteers who advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the court system (CASA). At that time the agency officially changed its name to Child Network to include both programs that work with abused and neglected children.
In July of 2018, a satellite office was opened in Watseka to provide more immediate and convenient access to services for families and investigative agencies in Iroquois County.
"Child Network's Mission is to improve the response to child sexual and physical abuse and to advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the court system in Kankakee & Iroquois County."
