Revisiting dangers of denial
Area advocacy centers stress being proactive
DIXON – The message of “stranger danger” is important, advocates say, but sex abuse is most often committed by those children know.
Both Lee and Whiteside counties have children’s advocacy centers designed to help young victims of sexual and physical abuse. There, they conduct forensic interviews with victims in safe, child-friendly environments.
Lee County’s center is Shining Star in Dixon, which also serves Ogle County, and Whiteside County’s is April House in Morrison.
