The Children’s Home has six locations in Peoria and more than 400 staff members that are out in the community every day.
Director of Foster Care, Amy Dennison, said staff is doing everything possible to make sure they are safe, but she said the string of violence is a concern. “We very much caution our staff to be careful and to make sure they are taking care of themselves when they're out there in the community.”
Dennison said no changes have been made to protocol. If violence continues to get worse, she said employees have the option to relocate meetings at their offices, instead of going out to homes.
