We partner with parents from pregnancy to high-school to provide the tools and resources to foster a stable, self-sufficient family.

Offering counseling, workshops, and family advocates to work with families to break the cycle of poverty.


We use data to inform our practices and offer the highest-level of education and services to the nearly 5,700 children and families we serve.

Our Chicago Benchmarking Collaborative, started in 2009, is an alliance of seven education and human service agencies that collectively work with more than 12,000 low-income individuals throughout some of Chicago’s most underserved neighborhoods. Christopher House is the Collaborative’s Project Manager.
