Were you a victim of abuse at MacLaren Children's Center?
Opened in 1961 as a temporary shelter for children awaiting placement in a foster home, MacLaren Children’s Center operated until 2003 when it was shut down after lawsuits alleged that staff had physically abused dozens of residents and that the facility routinely failed to properly care for children with emotional and behavioral problems.

The 2001 grand jury report also found the DCFS was failing to conduct timely investigations into misconduct allegations against staff, leaving dozens of claims of child abuse unchecked.
