mission, vision and values
Christopher House is committed to helping families thrive.
Christopher House is a catalyst for helping at-risk children from birth to age 18 thrive by taking a comprehensive approach to education and creating lifelong learners. We focus on each child’s overall growth and development which has a positive, measurable impact on their ability to succeed. Understanding that educating the child is not enough, we also provide supportive services to the entire family that help build stability and self-sufficiency. We serve nearly 4,000 children and family members every year through our six sites on Chicago’s north and west sides.
As an emerging national leader in the nonprofit sector, we provide low-income children and families with equal access to tools and opportunities. Our programs are dynamic, innovative, creative, and designed to improve the quality of family and community.
Christopher House’s best practices will be replicated across the country because of our clear and measurable impact toward strengthening families and communities.
