  • Families GO further

    The Family Hub program meets the unique needs of both the child and parent(s) by serving as a one-stop-shop for families to access services. The program will provide access to a broad range of services that help parents:
    • Gain employment
    • Manage their finances
    • Improve their physical and mental health
    • Obtain government services
    • Increase digital literacy
    • Improve their English proficiency
    The Family Hubs will operate out of Commons’ four early childhood education schools in Back of the Yards, Pilsen and West Humboldt Park.
  • Community Partners

    Chicago Commons partners with many organizations to deliver the Family Hub services, and uses internal resources from our adult education program, which serves as a LISC Financial Opportunity Center. See Our Community Partners
