Children's Home + Aid

 Children’s Home + Aid is a leading child and family service agency in Illinois. The organization helps children recover their health, their hope, and their faith in the people around them.  We link children to a network of opportunity and care, to extended family, teachers, mentors, and the resources of the neighborhood and community. For more than 130 years, the organization has gone wherever children and families need them, and where that work has been proven to be most effective: at home, in the classroom, in the neighborhood, in the course of daily life.

Children’s Home + Aid gives vulnerable children of all ages a safe, stable home when they need it and the chance to learn, to heal, to love, to dream, and to reach their potential.  Every three minutes, someone calls us for help. And 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in communities all across Illinois, we answer that call.
