ChicagoCAC convenes collaborative partnerships to prevent and respond to sexual abuse.
Together, we aim to meet the needs of specific communities, taking their unique challenges and opportunities into account as we work to keep children safe and help them heal.
ChicagoCAC convenes collaborative partnerships to prevent and respond to sexual abuse within specific populations. These partnerships include:
- Coalition Against Sexual Abuse of Children with Disabilities (CASACD) – led by Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center, more than 20 core partners represent self-advocates, social service, prevention, law enforcement, medical, advocacy and mental health disciplines to affect, advocate for and implement significant, system-wide changes in policy, culture and practice.
- The Community Advisory Council – a committed group of Chicago-area citizens who help us reach specific communities and offer their expertise and support to ChicagoCAC projects. Read more about two of our members here.
- The Chicago Prevention Alliance – a group of over 20 Chicago-area organizations committed to working together to end sexual harm against young people.
