Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center
Education, Prevention and Policy Program
Assisting Sick and Abused Children
The mission of Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center is to unite public, private and community partners to ensure the safety and well being of abused children. They have served over 45,000 children impacted by sexual abuse through family advocacy, case coordination, forensic interviews, trauma therapy and education training free of charge. As the pandemic continues to increase the risk of harm and trauma to children, the grant will help the organization’s Education, Prevention and Policy team to facilitate trainings, conduct awareness raising activities, and collaborate with partners to prevent, recognize, respond to and report sexual abuse.
