Helping Hand Program Ending

Reported by on 3/3/17

For more than 30 years, the Helping Hand Program in Naperville and surrounding communities has provided safe places for kids to go when they are lost, hurt, or feel they are danger. Those safe places were designated by a Helping Hand sign in the front window of the residence. Due to changing regulations, increase of cost, changing technology, and liability for both homeowners and the City of Naperville, the Naperville Police Department is discontinuing the Helping Hand Program.

The City of Naperville and the Naperville Police Department want to thank many of the longtime supporters of the Helping Hand Program. Thank you for your dedication and commitment. The program served its purpose and our community well for more than 30 years, and we look forward to continuing other existing programming and identifying and implementing any new programming going forward that will continue to keep the youth of our community safe.

The Naperville Police Department is asking all households who display the Helping Hand sign to return them to Gombert. Please write your address/name on the sign that is returned. This is to ensure we’re getting all signs returned.
