LAN63-Local Area Network is a group of dedicated parents, individuals, and organizations who promote the development of healthy families. Through advocacy and collaboration, we improve family access to local social services. The LAN works to prevent abuse and neglect through parent outreach, family support, early intervention, and assistance in coping with emotional and behavioral problems. These services are offered in English, Spanish and Polish. Our primary area of responsibility is the Northwest Side of Chicago but we collaborate with other LANs within the entire Chicago region.
