Mission Statement

The mission of Family Focus is
to promote the well-being of children from birth
by supporting and strengthening their families
in and with their communities.

Every day - at our eight direct service centers all around Chicago - our mission is realized through comprehensive family support services which address the issues faced by the individual children, families and communities we serve.

Our community-based support services build upon families’ inherent strengths. We work alongside parents to ensure that all children have the best possible start in life, believing that parents are a child's first, best teachers and that healthy families are essential to strong, vibrant communities.
