The Children’s Advocacy Center of North and Northwest Cook County is thrilled to announce a $5,000 gift from Outlook Marketing Services, Inc. in support of the Safe From the Start Campaign!
The Founder and CEO of Outlook Marketing, Jeff Rappaport, is extending his support of Safe From the Start during a time of critical need. Due to the fiscal year 2016 Illinois budget impasse, Safe From the Start lost 39% of its funding and is no longer included in the state budget. CAC has been able to maintain the program throughout this time by using reserve funding and launched the campaign to preserve the program through fiscal year 2018.
Rappaport commented on the gift saying, “I was extremely disappointed in the funding situation of the SFTS program, realizing it is so crucial to help children (and parents) break the chain of violence. I consider it an honor to work with CAC, and look forward to keeping CAC strong and sustainable.” Outlook Marketing also supports CAC with content and marketing communications services. They truly go above and beyond to further CAC’s mission by helping raise awareness.
CAC's Safe From the Start program is the only local program designed to specifically address the impact of exposure to violence on very young children and their families. Children ages birth through five and their families receive individual and family therapy, crisis intervention and other services to recover from exposure to violence. All Safe From the Start services are offered at no cost to the children and families.
The staff and families of CAC are grateful and humbled by Rappaport and his team at Outlook Marketing. CAC cannot say thank you enough for their generosity and support. To learn more about Outlook Marketing visit www.outlookmarketingsrv.com.
