Featured Charity: Family Focus
Family Focus helps Chicago-area families living in low-income communities give their children the best possible start in life. We help families gain the confidence and skills to be the parents they want to be. By offering customized classes, support groups and referral services in a welcoming and caring environment, Family Focus helps families help themselves while building a relationship based on equality and respect. Family Focus concentrates on the needs of young children (0 -5 years) but provides services to children of all ages. There are 7 Family Focus locations in the Greater Chicago area, including Englewood, Lawndale, Cicero/Hermosa, Evanston, Highwood/Highland Park, DuPage and Aurora. Learn more about Family Focus.

What to Bring:
Do you or your company have something to share? Family Focus has 7 direct service centers serving over 20,000 children and parents, plus afterschool programs in 40 Chicago-area schools, and has long wish lists. They are in need of diapers, formulas, bottles, baby clothing (onesies), blankets, clothes, bibs, winter coats, art supplies, food, and more. Your in-kind donation allows Family Focus to devote more money to its programs by reducing operating expenses.
