What We Do


We make sure the children, ages 0-24, and families in our care have every opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Since 1894, our mission has been to protect, heal and educate children and families so they can build better lives. Every child in our care has experienced trauma–abuse, neglect, poverty, toxic stress, or violence. Our programs use a trauma-informed, clinical framework called Attachment, Regulation and Competency (ARC) to encourage healing and personal growth so they can realize their dreams.

At this time, Kids Above All offers services to impoverished children and families in Cook, DuPage, Kane and Lake counties, including doula and early childhood education, affordable daycare, foster care and adoption services, housing for teens and homeless young adults, and counseling.
