Sharing Positivity, Support, & Balance

We strongly believe in the practice of reaching out past our four walls in further pursuit of our mission; providing positivity, support, and balance for young children and families.

As an organization, Kids’ Work provides consistent monthly monetary support to Chicago Birthworks Collective, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, and Lurie Children’s Hospital.

We have served for a number of years as a Bundles of Joy drop off site collecting a great number of diapers and supplies for needy families in the area

Each year we participate in numerous canned food drives benefiting the Lakeview Pantry, serve as a Toys For Tots donation site, and hold an annual “Kids’ Work Block Party” fundraiser benefiting Tuesday’s Child!
