Why Take A Step for Kids Matters
Take A Step for Kids is held annually during Child Abuse Prevention Month to bring attention to the serious need to protect children and provide them with support. Community Youth Network is a local Non-Profit, Counseling Center; our agency mission is “to preserve and strengthen families while protecting children from abusive and high risk situations”. 
Every day we provide children, in Lake County and the surrounding areas, with much needed counseling to heal their past trauma and to give them hope for a bright and healthy future. 
Proceeds from the Run/Walk go directly towards providing counseling services to hundreds of children, families and individuals every year. We work hard to provide our clients with a variety of services ranging individual counseling to group counseling to play therapy. 

Join us and help support families and children who have been victims of physical, mental and sexual abuse.
