How Your Gift Helps

Gifts to Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center make a lasting impact

Thanks to generous organizations and individuals like you, all of ChicagoCAC’s services are free of charge to every client, every time. That means whether a family comes to the center once for their initial investigation of abuse, or every week for two years of mental health therapy, cost will never get in the way of the healing services they need. You make it possible for children and families to get the  vital support and resources they need to heal from child sexual abuse.

Proven services

At ChicagoCAC, we take pride in the exceptional care we provide for children and families who come through our doors. Our accreditation from National Children’s Alliance ensures that our policies and procedures align with best practices, particularly in the disciplines of case collaboration, forensic interviewing, family advocacy, mental health and medical care. Supporting ChicagoCAC means you’re supporting proven, trauma-informed services for victims of abuse.

Our clients’ stories

We respond to more than 2,000 reports of child sexual abuse each year, and we’re inspired by each child we meet. At the center, we see children’s resiliency, help them heal and watch them grow through our family advocacy services and mental health therapy. Read some of our clients’ stories to learn more about the impact you can make by supporting ChicagoCAC. 

What caregivers say

Our teams consistently meet high standards to ensure families get the support they need – and deserve. When surveyed, 99 percent of our families were satisfied with the support services they receive at the center. 100 percent of our families are satisfied with our mental health services.  Here’s what a few caregivers have to say about their experience at the center:

  • “I felt so safe, and I know that I am not alone. Thank you.”
  • “Our advocate took the time to explain and answer all of our questions.”
  • “All of the staff were very helpful and explained everything to me beforehand. I felt like my child was in great hands.”
  • “I really appreciated how clearly I got answers to all of my questions.”
  • “Everyone was so friendly. We love it here.”
