BLOOMINGTON - Kids in McLean County may soon have to spend more time in the court room with their parents.

The Children's Home & Aid Room at the courthouse has been a place for young children to escape while their parents are in a court.

Officials say in the last year more than 550 kids used the service. But now, because of a funding shortfall, the doors won't be open on Wednesdays, and that can affect the kids and their parents.

"It has helped decrease parents' stress level too because they don't know have to worry about their children in the court room, or when they're trying to fill out paper work or anything like that,” said Tiffanny Powell, family support services program manager for McLean County.

Powell says most of the items inside the children's room have been donate. An additional $3,000 in funding would pay for staff to watch the children.

If you’re interesting in donating, please call the court house at 309-834-5246.
