About Us

For more than 120 years, Chicago Commons’ mission has been to partner with individuals, families and communities to overcome poverty, discrimination and isolation. To fulfill that mission, Commons provides high-quality early childhood education, family centered adult education and senior services to 3,000 people annually.

Our services ensure that children, families and seniors GO further.

  • Through four early education schools, we ensure that children are prepared for kindergarten ready to learn.
  • While children are being educated and cared for, their parents/families can receive comprehensive services through our Family Hub program.
  • For seniors, we provide in home care and adult day services, so they stay in their homes, and loved ones/care takers can work or go to school.

Chicago Commons programs and services serve as the backbone of specific communities, including Chicago’s West Humboldt Park, Pilsen, Bronzeville, and New City (Back of the Yards). These neighborhoods are impacted by high rates of poverty and limited educational and economic resources.
