Mission Statement

Recognizing the right of all children to a safe childhood, The Children's Advocacy Center of North and Northwest Cook County continuously strives to reduce trauma and provide support to child victims of violence and their families. The Center serves as a community resource to facilitate the identification, intervention, and prevention of child abuse. The Children's Advocacy Cener serves the north and northwest suburbs of Cook County.

Description

Welcome to the Children’s Advocacy Center of North and Northwest Cook County. Before the existence of such centers, victims of abuse often had to relive their story through repeated interviews with caregivers, DCFS investigators, State’s Attorneys, local law enforcement officers and others. Today, in addition to compassionate support services, CAC of North and Northwest Cook County provides a place for children to tell their abuse story ONE TIME to a team of people dedicated to helping them heal.

The goal of the Children's Advocacy Center of North & Northwest Cook County is to provide a multidisciplinary approach to severe physical and child sexual abuse cases. The Center recognizes the special, unique needs of child victims, while demanding accountability for the crime of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse.

A 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization, CAC is a fully accredited member of the National Children’s Alliance. CAC provides all services free of charge in both English and Spanish.
