Last modified: December 18, 2014, 1:50 AM


Family Matters, located in Chicago's North of Howard neighborhood, offers children and families individualized personal development experiences that provide opportunities to find their place in the world and to be a force for positive change. Utilizing our Principles of Leadership – positive thinking and language, peaceful conflict resolution, and illuminating the power of responsible decision-making – we partner with families to design and implement experiential learning programs tailored to their specific needs and interests. Programs range in scope from tutoring and after-school activities for children and teens to broader initiatives such as fitness and health, postsecondary readiness, and environmental stewardship. Our programs engage individuals with the broader community and cultivate responsible citizenship by encouraging personal and collective activism to affect change. For all who call Family Matters home, we offer safe surroundings where individuals can explore, discover, take risks and determine their futures.
