THE STORY:

Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC), is committed to ending domestic violence. Using a self-help, empowerment approach, we provide a shelter for women and children, and counseling, advocacy, and a 24-hour hotline for people affected by domestic violence. We work for social change through education, service collaboration and institutional advocacy.

CAWC has a long history of service and advocacy for abused women and their children. Over the years, CAWC has evolved in response to changing needs. To reflect the expanded scope of its current services and its goals for the future, CAWC changed its name from Chicago Abused Women Coalition to Connections for Abused Women and their Children, retaining its highly recognizable acronym of CAWC in 2008.

CAWC operates four main programs to offer individual and group counseling, safety planning, life skills training, goal setting and budgeting support, housing, income and employment information, legal advocacy, in addition to specialized children’s services.

Our programs: Greenhouse Shelter, Hospital Crisis Intervention Project (HCIP), Humboldt Park Outreach Program (HPOP), and Domestic Violence Services at Haymarket Center.

YOU can help stop domestic violence now. Join in on our Purple Purse Challenge and make a donation on our page or create your own fundraising page to help raise even more money for CAWC. No amount is too small. The more money we raise, the greater our chances are of winning $100,000 from the Allstate Foundation....just imagine how many lives we can save with that!

The Purple Purse Challenge runs from September 2- October 3.
