Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center
Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center (ZCenter) is the only rape crisis center in Lake County. Built on the courage of survivors, staff, volunteers and donors, ZCenter has been serving the community as a non-profit center against sexual assault and abuse since 1983. The Highland Park Community Foundation’s grant supports ZCenter’s Children’s Program. Through counseling and community education, this program helps survivors of sexual assault heal, prevent re-traumatization, and change assumptions and attitudes about rape and sexual abuse.
