Part of the family since 1857

llinois’ first chartered non-profit organization

Today, we employ 900 full- and part-time professionals who help strengthen the lives of low-income individuals and families.

From early childhood to senior care, we currently serve more than 72,000 people in seven community centers throughout Chicago, suburban Cook County and DuPage County.

To meet today’s needs, we’ve grown 54% since 2011. And now we’ve launched our $25 million Campaign to Mpower Families to reach more families, strengthen our work and sustain the future.

With your help, we can empower 100,000 people by 2020.
