The summer of 2017 is bringing big changes to Prevent Child Abuse Illinois!
Roy Harley has retired after more than 19 years as Executive Director. Roy has been our guiding light at PCA Illinois and has left a legacy of excellent programs and projects. We are happy that he will be able to spend more time with his family and his ministry, but he will be deeply missed by staff, board, and partners who have come to rely on his expertise and wisdom.
Good luck Roy!
With that news, Prevent Child Abuse Illinois is proud to welcome its new Executive Director,
Denise McCaffrey. Denise has been with the agency for over 16 years and brings her vast experience and knowledge to the position. Denise will pick up where Roy left off spearheading our annual conference planning, overseeing new program development, and working with our current partners and stakeholders to keep child abuse and neglect prevention at the forefront throughout Illinois.
As if that wasn't enough, longtime Southern Region Prevention Specialist Tarra Winters is our new Director of Programs. Tarra will continue her great work in the Metro East area but will also serve PCA Ilinois statewide overseeing the Prevention Specialist project, the new DEC Alliance, and all PCA Illinois programs. Congratulations Tarra!
And since our last newsletter we would like to welcome Kristin Kaufman, Central Region Prevention Specialist and Jeremy Goeckner, Director of Communication and Development.
Big changes!! But the same commitment to protecting children
and promoting positive parenting!
