Connections for Abused Women and their Children, formerly Chicago Abused Women Coalition, 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 initiated the first domestic violence services program in Chicago. They have a hotline and opened the first shelter for battered women and their children, Greenhouse Shelter, in 1979. In 1992, CAWC founded the Hospital Crisis Intervention Project (HCIP). The first of its kind in a public hospital, HCIP is a model on-site domestic violence program that trains clinicians on the public health impact of abuse and assists battered women. In 1998, CAWC began providing domestic violence services to women seeking substance abuse treatment. In 2000, CAWC opened the Humboldt Park Outreach Program (HPOP). HPOP provides individual and group counseling to victims of abuse and their children, as well as enhanced children's therapeutic services to children.
