Building a secure and hopeful today so children facing health issues and poverty succeed tomorrow. That's the promise of The Children's Place Association.
We help children overcome illness and extreme poverty so they can lead healthy, productive lives.

Our programs include Early Childhood Education, 24-hour Nursing, Family Housing, Supportive Services, Foster/Adoptive Care and Summer Camp. We serve more than 350 Chicago-area children and caregivers annually, and our international program helps 300 HIV/AIDS-affected children in Haiti.
