The Center for Prevention of Abuse is the only agency in the State of Illinois to provide combined services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault/abuse, and elder abuse. The Center also reaches students age pre-K through college with violence prevention education, as well as abusers with an abuser education program.

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. On Saturday, Bustos volunteered at the Quad City Animal Welfare Center.
