Throughout the year CAC hosts a variety of events. Proceeds directly benefit our clients and allow us to continue providing free, healing services. For the safety of our supporters, our events are contingent based upon current COVID-19 information provided by the CDC & Illinois government. Check back here for the most up to date event information.

Healing Hearts


Vibrant heart sculptures will be displayed in front of participating businesses and organizations. Heart gardens will be displayed in front of homes and a virtual heart garden will be available for all to see on this website. These are physical representations of the healing work of CAC and the hope we can spread. We want these hearts to start a conversation about child abuse and how CAC helps children who have been abused by providing them with free, healing services to build resilience and confidence
