We are saddened to hear that sexual misconduct cases continued to rise within CPS in 2022 after the latest CPS Office of Inspector General (OIG) report came out earlier this month. Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center remains committed as a resource to CPS in their investigations of these cases.
Char Rivette, Chief Executive Officer of ChicagoCAC added, “We believe that the collaborative approach among investigating agencies utilized at ChicagoCAC reduces the trauma to the victims of child sexual abuse while an investigation is proceeding. We also believe that opportunity and availability of services for victims of child sexual abuse and their families including advocacy, medical and mental health treatment is important to the restoration of children after cases are reported.”
ChicagoCAC offers sexual abuse recognition training and prevention for the education of students, teachers, school workers, and parents. Please contact Karina Gil, Director of Education, Outreach and Prevention, at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
