BENEFITING: Connections for Abused Women and Their Children
On an average day in Illinois, more than 500 calls for help from victims of domestic abuse and violence go unanswered, because there is not enough shelter space and other resources to meet the need. Now, you have an opportunity to make a tremendous impact with helping women and their children to escape the torture of domestic abuse and violence.
Since 1977, Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC) has been serving Chicago-area women and children who are victims of domestic abuse and violence. CAWC is the oldest and one of the largest nonprofit organization of its kind in the Greater Chicago Area, and has Chicago's oldest 24-hour Domestic Abuse Hotline: (773) 278-4566.
Also operating the area's oldest shelter for victims of domestic violence, "Greenhouse Shelter," CAWC has other lifesaving programs as well: the Hospital Crisis Intervention Project (HCIP) at both Stroger and Northwestern Memorial Hospitals, and the Humboldt Park Outreach Program (HPOP). You can find out more about Connections for Abused Women and their Children by visiting the organization's website.
Please help CAWC to raise money and awareness to aid victims of domestic abuse and violence by forwarding this message to your colleagues, vendors, family, friends and others who may help in this important crowdfunding campaign.
