We focused on two important Chicago organizations providing critically needed and inspiring services for over 100 years.

Gads Hill Center was founded in Pilsen in 1898. For 112 years, it has grown and adapted to the needs of its evolving community, and continues to reach out to serve more families in Chicago neighborhoods. For more information visit www.gadshillcenter.org.

Established in 1870 in the settlement house tradition, Erie House evolved into one of the first comprehensive social service agencies in Chicago and is now a recognized nonprofit leader. Erie's educational programs reach over 5,000 participants annually, providing a pathway to success and strengthening communities. Erie House celebrates 140 years of services this year!
