State Senator Jacqueline Y. Collins received the Blue Bow Award last Wednesday for her work in preventing child abuse and neglect through visionary public policy. The commendation was given by Children’s Home + Aid, an organization that facilitates adoptions and provides services to troubled families and abused children. Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle (a past Blue Bow honoree) presented recipients with their awards at the Children’s Home + Aid Champions for Children Luncheon on April 11. Sen. Collins received the award for her leadership in Englewood and surrounding communities, where child abuse and neglect rates are some of the highest in Chicago.

“I believe that protecting children requires safe homes but also safe communities,” Sen. Collins said.
