About Us

Onward Neighborhood House was founded in 1893 as a settlement house and 120 years later, it continues to be a neighborhood resource. Onward House serves families moving forward toward greater purpose and self-sufficiency. It is also a resource when emergencies strike, linking residents to services and ensuring no one goes hungry. Onward House operates two sites in Chicago, one in the WestTown community and one in the Belmont Cragin community. Onward House also provides Head Start services through four partnership sites on Chicago’s west side.

Annually, Onward House serves approximately 950 families and over 5,500 individuals through Head Start and School Age programming, a food pantry, a Community Computer Resource Center, Family Support Services, and English as a second language classes.

The mission of Onward Neighborhood House is to empower families and individuals in need to achieve their full potential in a community-based setting through participant-driven educational, recreational and social service programs.
