We believe that consistent academic support offers a child the hope they need to succeed.

Our Mission

Chicago HOPES for Kids provides educational support for children living in Chicago's homeless shelters. It is our mission to provide our students with the resources and encouragement needed to succeed academically, despite the challenges of homelessness.

Who we Are

Chicago HOPES for Kids empowers children experiencing homelessness by providing direct academic support in Chicago’s homeless shelters. Children who are experiencing homelessness can fall three to six months behind in school due to their unstable living environment. We help these students unlock their own potential by ensuring that the children receive the necessary academic support needed to keep up in school. More importantly, we seek to foster a positive relationship with learning that will give our students hope for the future.
