OLLI members received a little lesson in Peoria history on this sunny Monday morning. Members were greeted by Children's Home CEO Clete Winkelmann, Emily Prouty from the division of Development, and Annual Giving Coordinator Jody Smith-Brown, who introduced them to the organization that has been caring for Peoria's Children for almost 150 years.
The Children's Home operates from six locations in the Peoria area, and is staffed by over 400 professionals who offer counseling services, education, and support to more than 1,100 children and families each month! After learning about how the Children's Home came to be the successful agency that it is today, OLLI members had the opportunity to tour the historical Knoxville Avenue facility.
For more information on the agency and the services it offers, please visit The Children's Home Website.
Comment below! We would love to hear your thoughts!
