Our Story

Lake Bluff Children compressed

Our legacy of building better lives for kids

Kids Above All was founded in 1894 on the principles of alleviating suffering, eradicating the causes of injustice and facilitating the development of full human potential. We continue that work today, placing the safety, well-being and education of kids above everything else.

We invite you to learn about our growth from in a cottage in Lake Bluff, Illinois providing a home for six orphaned children to a social impact organization impacting young people and families experiencing poverty, violence and injustice across Cook, DuPage, Kane and Lake counties.
