Providing Support For Children Who Are Victims Of Abuse And Violence
Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center and our partners are the front-line responders in Chicago to reports of child sexual abuse. We also respond to reports of child physical abuse, witness to violence, and other serious maltreatment. ChicagoCAC is the city’s only nonprofit organization that coordinates the efforts of child protection staff, law enforcement professionals, family advocates, medical experts, and mental health clinicians under one roof. All of our services are free, and our collaborative approach is aimed at reducing trauma so that children and families may begin the healing process. Since opening our doors in 2001, we have served more than 36,000 children.
