Target demographics: Annually, we work with over 1,000-1,500 school-aged hospitalized kids (varies based on hospital admissions over which we have no control), who come, primarily, from the greater Chicago area, while also drawing from the collar counties of Lake Michigan and neighboring states. Ethnically, our student/patients are African-American (50%), Asian (6%), Caucasian (20%), Latino (23%), and Other (1%). Approximately 46% of our student/patients are female and 54% are male. Roughly 70% are low income/working poor (100% at Stroger Hospital), 45% speak English as a second language, and 100% are considered disabled.
Geographic areas served: Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.
