Your gift to Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center is an investment in the work of our dedicated staff and, most importantly, in the lives of the children we serve.

All of our services are provided free of charge to our clients, including family advocacy, forensic interviews, mental health therapy and child life. We rely on private donors for nearly half of the funds needed to provide these services, and the core of that support comes from the community of individuals who make annual unrestricted gifts.

Your gift to ChicagoCAC’s annual fund can be used where it is most needed, so you have a tremendous impact on our children and families. The return on your investment is extraordinary – our programs and services protect children and help them heal.
