Who we help.

We serve thousands of families in all counties across the State of Illinois.

(The Division of Specialized Care for Children) was one of the first organizations to step into our lives. They were some of the first social workers who came into our home and really began helping us to navigate our new lives with a medically complex child.
— Erica Stearns, mother of Margot and Caratacus
