Our top priority is the health and well-being of all Illinois children.
As a statewide, nonpartisan, multi-issue advocacy organization, we are committed to building better lives for children. We engage in a range of activities — including policy research and analysis, policy advocacy, strategic communications, and community engagement — all in support of policies and programs that enhance the well-being of children, families, and communities in Illinois. We encourage policymakers to prioritize resources in a way that strengthens our families and communities, protects our children, and supports economic growth.
Children need opportunities to develop the full range of skills required to be informed and engaged citizens and to succeed in the workplace of the future. Learn more about our strategies to ensure the education, health, and well-being of all Illinois children.
