In honor of the holiday season, TKB made an employee-directed donation to the Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center.    ChicagoCAC is a long term client, for whom TKB has worked on multiple facility renovations and their recent building addition (see link to: PBC/CCAC project).  TKB believes in the ChicagoCAC mission, and previously made in-kind donations of conference chairs and tables to help furnish their expanded facility.

ChicagoCAC provides a safe place for children and their families to report abuse and to heal.  Their holistic approach is an example to other communities and organizations.  We appreciate the hard work and caring demonstrated by the ChicagoCAC, and are delighted to share with them.

To learn more about ChicagoCAC, you can check out their website here.  You can also visit their Facebook page here and give them a “Like” too!
