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

The event, hosted by CAC's Emerging Leaders  will feature a bowling, pizza, silent auction and raffle prizes. All proceeds will directly fund our free services that minimize trauma and maximize healing for families that have been impacted by childhood abuse.

Frames for Futures is a family friendly event filled with CAC supporters who come together support the more than 1,000 children and families who walk through CAC’s doors every year. We hope that you will join us!
