Renovation work is underway on a new home for the Sangamon County Child Advocacy Center.
The CAC is a department of county government that coordinates child sex abuse cases, helping young victims navigate the process. The agency had worked out of a small building behind the Sangamon County Building since 1990… but that building will eventually have to be demolished to make room for the wider 10th Street rail corridor. The new home is a former medical clinic one block to the east.
Purchase and renovation of the building will cost around $300,000, and the CAC should be able to move in early next year.
