Happy new year! As we make bold plans in 2017, we wanted to look back at the numerous successes and highlights across our programs, development and community partnerships in 2016.
Thank you to Chicago White Sox Charities for supporting kids and families at ChicagoCAC with a $35,000 grant for our Family Hope Center! We put this funding to good use with our individual therapy, family support groups and caregiver programming to help Chicagoans heal from the trauma of child sexual abuse. #soxserve
For kids who have been abused, talking about the experience can be painful. ChicagoCAC and our fellow child advocacy centers were founded to minimize that trauma and to preserve evidence so a child doesn’t have to tell and retell what happened to them. From our welcoming building, to our friendly and compassionate staff members, to the nature of our partnerships with law enforcement and child protection teams, we make it easier for kids to come forward and begin healing faster and more fully.
We are now accepting applications for fall internships in our family advocacy, social work, prevention and other departments, as well as a psychology externship and a post-doctoral fellow. In addition to helping children and families heal from sexual abuse, interns at ChicagoCAC receive professional supervision and are able to participate in clinical trainings.
Last year, we served more families than ever before – and we expect to see even more in 2016. Help us be here for the children who need us by making a donation today! Remember, your donations help ensure that all of our services are free of charge to every client, every time.
