Adopt-a-Center Partnership

By adopting one of our seven Chicagoland centers, you will make a significant impact on that community, addressing its most pressing needs. Family Focus resources centers are a vibrant part of the community, where families are given the skills to support and advocate for their children.  The centers allow for families with limited transportation to access services in one place.

Your contribution would support programming such as:

  • Enabling 10 teen mothers to receive three months of home visits, parent workshops, career and academic planning, and access to comprehensive medical services, including information about postponing a second pregnancy.
  • Supporting 40 fathers in our Mission Men program by providing support services and resources for fathers trying to build a relationship with their children.
  • Providing 20 adults with a year of Microsoft certification, ESL or GED classes to help parents become economically self-sufficient and independent.
  • Sponsoring 40 children to attend Family Focus' summer camp, keeping them safe, active and learning all year long.
