I have been involved with this organization through volunteering and on a donor basis and their committment to helping the under privledged children and families of Illinois is astounding. I am constantly spreading the word of this organization to family and friends, because their clients deserve our help. What particularly strikes a cord with me is their Community Schools Program, giving children in some of the more at risk neighborhoods of Chicago after school programming, this not only keeps the children off the streets but gives them an outlet to express themselves and succeed!

I love this program. My children have been in this program for years and I have no regrets. This program has given my children a safe enviroment to socialize and use their talents in a positive way. My daughter has done many activities with them. It has kept her out of trouble and I was highly impressed when Lily Leon took my daughter under her wing when she was going through a tough time. Her positive attitude and love for the children and families truly is one that is not easy to come by. I have developed positive and trusting relationships with the staff and think this program is a very much needed one for all schools especially in high risk neighborhoods. All the staff I have come in contact with had nothing but the childre and families best interest in minds. They all have been helpful and nice to the children and myself. I am glad my children can be part of such a program.

The Great!

I have been a member of the Bloomington, Il. Advisory Board for several years. The work this organization does for children and families is amazing. We hear of specific success stories at each Board meeting to remind us what our core mission is. Despite all of the budget cutbacks, the organization's leadership stays focused on the positives, their mission and how they can best serve children and families. The staff is not deterred in its efforts, even when there are cutbacks. They just keep working harder, for a very meager income. Children's Home and Aid is one of the most valuable services in our city.

The Great!

I am a Board member and do not receive the services. However i have observed the results of the Crisis Nursery, foster care programs and Adopt a Family campaign.

Find more fund raising opportunities so that it could expand its services and the staff would be compensated more.
