Growing & Giving Campaign

Our Growing & Giving campaign helps us realize our bold vision for the future: together, we can prevent child sexual abuse and help victims heal.

Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center and our partners are the front-line responders in Chicago to reports of child sexual abuse, as well as reports of physical abuse of children under age 3.

Through a $9 million TIF funding investment, we added an 18,000-square-foot expansion to our center, giving our clients, staff and community the space they need. Now, we’re engaging our community to help us raise $2.5 million to build capacity as we grow and sustain our programs. Through this public-private partnership, we’re able to help the families who need us and prevent abuse.

Why we need your help

Donations to our Growing & Giving campaign support two main efforts:

1. Therapy for victims of child sexual abuse

ChicagoCAC Therapy2Our Growing & Giving campaign supports our doubled mental health therapy space and staffing. Your donation ensures more children get the help they need more quickly, so they can overcome trauma and heal from abuse.
