There is a home in a good family for every homeless child and woe to me if I do not find it.
Children’s Home & Aid is a leading child and family service agency in Illinois. We help children recover their health, their hope, and their faith in the people around them.
We link children to a network of opportunity and care, to extended family, teachers, mentors, and the resources of their neighborhood and community. For 135 years, we go wherever children and families need us, and where that work has been proven to be most effective: at home, in the classroom, in the neighborhood, in the course of daily life. Our offices are located across Illinois and serve more than 40,000 children and families each year in over 60 counties.

Chicago Lights Tutoring encourages 440 students living in under-resourced neighborhoods to graduate from high school and pursue higher education and meaningful careers. We match each first through twelfth grader with one caring adult tutor/mentor and provide them with innovative educational, arts, and enrichment resources that promote long-term academic and social success.
Children in grades one through twelve—mostly from Chicago’s Near North, Near West, and Austin/Lawndale neighborhoods—come to Tutoring for weekly one-to-one tutoring sessions with volunteer tutor/mentors. In addition, the program offers healthy meals, creative enrichment classes, literacy activities, career development opportunities, access to technology, high school scholarships, college preparedness, and art and digital music instruction.
Middle and high school students actively participate in our youth programs—Career Development, Career Prep, Scholarship, and Ninth-Grade Readiness—while our students in grades 1-6 participate in activities such as the Spelling Bee, Reading Rewards, and Read Alouds.
America Needs You fights for economic mobility for ambitious, first-generation college students. We do this by providing transformative mentorship and intensive career development.
Since 2009, ANY has been improving college completion and employment rates for first-generation college students. The agency was founded on the belief that socio-economic status should not be a barrier to college persistence and career success.
Robert Reffkin, a former appointee to the NYC Workforce Investment Board and two-time appointee to the NYC Board of Education Panel for Educational Policy, recognized the incredible unmet need for mentorship and career preparation for low-income students, particularly those who are the first in their families to go to college. Compelled to action, Robert founded ANY (formerly New York Needs You) in 2009 to mobilize a movement of young, professional volunteers to assist these students in rising above their circumstances.
After successful and sustained results in New York, ANY expanded to New Jersey in 2012, Illinois in 2015, and California in 2016.
