Multi-Generational Services Of Early Education, Family Support, And Senior Care For Under-Resourced Families
The mission of Chicago Commons is to empower individuals, families, and communities to overcome poverty and systemic barriers, embrace opportunities, and thrive across generations. We provide high-quality early childhood education, family-centered adult education, and senior services to more than 3,000 individuals annually. Founded in 1894, Chicago Commons was one of Chicago’s original settlement houses serving immigrants on the city’s near north side. For over 125 years, our programs have helped to move children and families toward educational success, economic security, and good health and well-being. Today, we are located in the neighborhoods of Humboldt Park, Pilsen, Back of the Yards, and Bronzeville, and we offer senior care throughout metro Chicago.
