The Safe From the Start Campaign, which launched in August, has now reached 56% of the $125,000 goal! CAC cannot thank supporters of the campaign enough for their generous gifts.
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.
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.
Please consider making a gift in support of the
Safe From the Start Campaign. Thank you!
