The Awareness Center, Inc. is the international Jewish Coalition Against Sexual Abuse/Assault (JCASA). We are dedicated to ending sexual violence in Jewish communities globally. We do our best to operate as "the make a wish foundation" for Jewish survivors of sex crimes, by offering a clearinghouse of information, resources, support and advocacy.
We are a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
History of The Awareness Center - Almost 15 years old
Let's flashback about 18 years. Here's how The Awareness Center got started. We were originally a holistic counseling center in Chicago. This was an ad in the Chicago yellow pages. Yup, from back in time when we used phonebooks.
This coming April 17th will mark our 15th year anniversary of when we started to transform from a holistic counseling center into an international non-profit organization that is dedicated to ending sex crimes in Jewish communities globally.
