Chicago Child Care Society depends on the generosity of individuals, businesses and foundations for the resources that are necessary to address the many and varied need of the children and families we serve. It is the case that public funds do not and cannot cover the full cost of service delivery during these difficult economic times. For many of our families, seemingly small or minor expenses can be daunting. For example, a teen parent often struggles to maintain a home environment with her parent or grandparent, and the cost of books for school or new shoes for the baby is often unmanageable. Your contributions help CCCS staff address needs like these. We could not provide the best for our children and families without your individual contributions.
