We admire the fact that ChicagoCAC provides an environment comprised of a multidisciplinary approach to begin and continue the trauma-healing process of the children and their families.
We believe in paying it forward and giving back resources that we have been blessed to receive because to “whom much is given, much is required” (Luke 12:48).

It is so unfortunate that we witness and live in a world with vast child abuse of all forms. However, we/you can join the mission of ChicagoCAC of eradicating child sex abuse through your time, talents, and treasures!
