Help end the need for foster care as we know it in Illinois
The systemic barriers facing families in under-resourced communities are massive and entrenched. And too often, symptoms of poverty are mistaken for signs of neglect.
But together, we can shift focus from intervention to prevention by working with families to access the resources, assistance, and opportunities they need to overcome these barriers and create thriving homes.
Whether you choose to give monthly or make a generous one-time gift, you will be making an immediate and meaningful difference for families in Illinois by helping provide:
- Advocacy and services for families across 67 counties
- Mental health support for children and caregivers who have experienced trauma
- Youth programs that help ensure success at home, in school, and in communities
- In-home coaching to hundreds of Illinois families striving to transform their children’s future
- Childcare and early education through five early childhood centers and home-based programs
- Child welfare services that partner with children and caregivers to meaningfully make strides
- Programs and services that strengthen families and help them heal from trauma while working to achieve their goals and dreams
- Expanded access to programs like Choose 2 Change that reduce and ultimately end youth involvement in gun violence across all Chicago neighborhoods.
But most importantly, your support will help keep more Illinois families together—and more kids out of foster care—by collaborating with families before a crisis happens.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to ending the need for foster care. But we’re committed to meeting families where they are with compassion and to offering guidance and support every step of the way.
