Mission Statement

Angel By MySide, NFP is an up and coming Chicago 501c3 organization with doors opening in 2010. We are committed to helping displaced children by providing ongoing support to kinship (relative) caregivers who have embraced the overwhelming responsibility of providing care when a parent is unable.

Description

Children in kinship care families are faced with many challenges including behavioral problems, grief, and confusion. Many are displaced as the result of the death of a parent, parental drug abuse, incarceration of parents, abandonment, child abuse and neglect as well as many other special circumstances.

Angel By MySide aims to create a lasting change in the lives of children in kinship families from youth to adulthood helping them reach their optimal level in achieving their dreams. We will accomplish our mission by developing tools and resources that provide ongoing support not only to children, but also to their kinship caregivers. We believe that assisting these families in obtaining vital resources, services, support and encouragement will make a difference in many of their lives.
