About Chicagoland Autism Connection (CAC)

  • We are there for families when they are given the news that a loved one has been diagnosed with this lifetime disorder.
  • We are there for families when they need a shoulder to lean on.
  • We are there for families when they need someone to simply listen.
  • We are there for families when they need advice - when they need to draw upon the experiences of other families who have gone through what they are presently experiencing - when they need the reassurance that yes, things will get better - that there is hope.

The Chicagoland Autism Connection (CAC) is a not-for profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to increase autism awareness and improve the quality of life for children and adults with autism.  Since 1997 the CAC has touched hundreds of families by providing tools to "shine the light" on the darkness of autism.

With monthly parent meetings, the "Spring Fling for Autism Awareness" Resource Fair, a summer picnic and pool party, the fall "Night of Stars" Dinner Dance, and numerous other activities, the CAC strives to support families affected by this devastating neurological disorder and the professionals who work with them.

Through its two divisions - the Chicago Southside Autism Support Group (CSASG) and the "A" Team Social and Recreational Club - CAC continues to work toward the fulfillment of its mission
