Help Children’s Place Association continue providing life-changing support for Chicago’s most vulnerable children through the Child Thrive initiative.
For 30 years, Children’s Place Association has partnered with local communities to build a better tomorrow for Chicago’s most vulnerable children – those challenged by health disparities, poverty and racial injustice. Our services stabilize vulnerable children and strengthen families so they can build a more promising future.
Later this year, Children’s Place will launch Child Thrive, a new initiative based in West Humboldt Park – a high-need area struggling with the impact of long-term systemic racism and disinvestment. The goal is to help this community transform from one of the harshest places to be a child into a great place to grow up… a neighborhood where every child can THRIVE.
