Hoyleton Youth and Family Services

Violence Prevention

Programs to keep youth and families safe.

We work to support a network of multi-jurisdiction law enforcement partners to address violent crime. Through violence prevention programs, law enforcement agencies in Southern Illinois gain additional resources to deal with violence in their communities.

Violence Prevention Programs We Support

Child Death Investigation Task Force

We provide the administrative support to law enforcement commanders investigating child death cases.


Project Safe Neighborhood

Hoyleton Youth & Family Services serves as the fiscal agent for the Project Safe Neighborhood initiatives in Central and Southern Illinois. These projects are led by the United States’ Attorney’s Office and targets high crime areas in Illinois to reduce community violence.

Behavioral Care for Violence Prevention and Support Programs

Our Counseling Care team works with juvenile justice centers in Southern Illinois to provide screenings and therapy to support youth and families with a history of involvement in the legal system. Adults who have survived the challenges of childhood abuse/neglect are offered support and therapy to move past childhood traumas in the VOCA Program.
