Stronger Together: How Foster Families Uplift our Community
Association House provides support and care for vulnerable children and families who have a history of child abuse and neglect and are involved with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). We serve the Cook County and Northern Illinois areas and remain one of the few providers with fully bilingual English/Spanish staff.
Our goal is to ensure the safety, well-being, and healthy development of children and adolescents with a history of trauma and to promote their resilience and progress. We aim to help parents and families develop nurturing and safe relationships with their children.
These resources are here for you. Feel free to check out any of these resources down below pertaining to Foster Care and IDCFS. Also, be sure to check out or Parenting Resources Page filled with tools and tips for all types of parents!
