About Association House of Chicago

Association House fills the systemic gaps left by institutions that exclude Chicago's multicultural individuals and families in need. We develop evidence-based, trauma-informed programs in mental and behavioral healthcare, education, and workforce development. And we provide a coordinated, wrap-around service model for 4,000 participants to address complex needs and improve their lives.

Association House began in 1899 as one of the city's original settlement houses. At that time, our participants were mostly central European - and in need of education, training, and social services to help them adapt to life in a new country. We provided services that the city and State did not, and offered programs to improve our community's access to and opportunity for participation in Chicago. Changing over the years, our participant community is still diverse - for many decades now mostly Latinx and African American - and demonstrate critical economic, health, and educational needs..
