Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center.
Built on the courage of survivors, staff, volunteers and donors, we have been serving the community as a non-profit center against sexual assault and abuse since 1983.

On behalf of Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center's staff and clients, we are honored! 300 guests supported ZCenter for an amazing afternoon at Independence Grove Visitors Center in Libertyville.

Thanks to you, we were able to raise over $131,000 making our 17th Annual Community Luncheon the most successful luncheon event in ZCenter history! All the funds raised through your extraordinary donations will go to support ZCenter's human rights mission to eliminate sexual violence. 

Special thanks to our speakers Kelli Tennant & Maythe Salcedo and congratulations to our Service Award Recipient Nicole Totoni-Melendez!  Thank you all of our volunteers for donating your time!
