Hope Institute Workers Put on Paid Leave Pending Abuse/Neglect Investigation

Thirty workers at the Hope Institute in Springfield were reportedly put on paid leave for a week in response to an investigation of alleged abuse and neglect at the residential facility.


That’s according to a union representative, quoted in today’s State Journal-Register.


DCFS is investigating a series of injuries… including a broken arm… suffered by a non-verbal 15-year-old boy who lives at the facility for developmentally-disabled children and young adults.


Hope Institute has declined to comment on the allegations or disciplinary action, except to say that it is cooperating with the investigation.
