To celebrate Mother’s Day, RSVP Gallery would like to honor all moms by supporting Connections for Abused Women and their Children’s effort to further awareness about the issues facing our community. 

Founded in 1976, Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC) is Chicago’s oldest domestic violence program. The organization offers a variety of services and resources throughout Chicago, including: shelter, substance abuse treatment, counseling, court advocacy, and more.

With stay-at-home orders still in place, there has been a marked increase in calls and text messages to domestic violence hotlines both in Illinois and nationwide, which means organizations like CAWC need extra support. Executive Director Stephanie Love-Patterson says that clients are currently in need of electronic devices with data plans, gift cards (especially for grocery stores) as well as employment opportunities with COVID-19 has resulted in layoffs.
