2008 008 ANNUAL U


Association House of Chicago Established 1899











g ratitude

Association House’s mission is to offer quality programs to those most in need. We have honored that mission for nearly 110 years. Our success is dependent on the effectiveness of our programs, and the generosity of our donors and volunteers. We measure our impact each day by the individual lives we touch. A young man graduating from high school with a diploma, a child getting a new start in a foster home, or a mother that learned new job skills and found employment, are just a few of the milestones we see happen every day. Witnessing these transformational stories motivates and sustains the work accomplished for more than a century in Chicago’s neediest communities. The demand for our services is increasing as the community we serve faces ongoing challenges. We see the increased demand for emergency services such as food and clothing, and increased enrollment in programs to learn new job skills and to become United State citizens. Against a backdrop of decreasing resources, we are especially proud of our accomplishments this year. Program highlights include the expansion of our Healthy Lifestyles program, as we address the alarming statistics of obesity, asthma and diabetes in our community. Our alternative high school graduated the most students in its history. Through our Child Welfare Program more than 279 children were placed in safe homes with loving families or with our assistance were able to stay with their own families. Nearly 154,000 pounds of food were distributed to families. The new Center for Working Families, again far exceeded the original goal to provide job readiness to increase economic independence, and placed 165 individuals in jobs this year alone. More than 100 children and teens were enrolled in the Association House Out of School Time program, a safe place to focus on academic and life skills.

El Cuarto Año H i g h


Association House’s High School, El Cuarto Año offers a small class size, high teacher to student ratio, and individual learning plans with an emphasis on technology to each of its nearly 100 students. It is an ideal school setting for re-enrolled students who have left the traditional school setting. In collaboration with the Youth Connection Charter Schools, Alternative Schools Network, and Chicago Public Schools, El Cuarto

Año offers a variety of tutoring and mentoring programs along with competitive academic studies. For many young people, this is the second chance they need to continue their education, earn their high school diplomas, and find viable employment. Students are able to achieve their dream of graduation often overcoming great odds through hard work and dedication.

Students enrolled in the high school benefit from an intensive mentoring program that extends past graduation to ensure life long success. 90% of our seniors receive their high school diploma. Over 70% of students increase their math and reading skills each year.


After relocating to Chicago, the Mendez Family was struggling. Lucia, the oldest of their four children, heard of the Association House from her cousin who was enrolled in the alternative High School, and she quickly joined too. Staff learned that family members were facing financial, educational, employment and health issues. They quickly connected the family with free health screenings and dental check-ups and offered special emergency funding to provide help in covering lagging utility bills. Lucia’s mother and father enrolled in the agency’s English as a Second Language and Citizenship classes. Recently, both her parents proudly passed the Citizenship interview and are continuing their commitment to become US citizens. Their ability to better communicate with employers has helped her parents gain full time work. Lucia is also working at her first job for a local printing company. This spring, Lucia will be the first member in her family to ever graduate from High School!


programs Out of

School Time

Literacy lessons adapted to children’s interests, arts education, and quality technology education are the hallmarks of our Out of School Time Program. The program offers unique opportunities for community children and teens, ages 6-17. Kids enrolled in the program are taught to face the challenges that develop from an overburdened public school system as

well as the intense influence of street activity and violence in Humboldt Park; one of Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods. Providing a safehaven for growth and empowerment, students have the chance to gain skills in a safe, and nurturing environment. Out of School Time runs during both the academic year and with extended hours as a Summer Day Camp.

Seven year old Luis has been a participant of the children’s Out of School Time Program since last year. He enrolled shortly after the sudden death of his father, and received the assistance needed to succeed academically and adjust emotionally. At first, he showed little interest in schoolwork. A Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) assessment identified that he was reading far below his grade level. With one on one homework guidance, his reading level soon improved. By the end of the school year, Luis was ranked in the 81st percentile for children his age! The staff created a special plan for Luis, involving him in an exciting summer filled with motivational activities and personal support. His social and emotional growth improved and his attitude at home where he became more respectful. Luis also now shows more responsibility at school and at Association House. Today he has a strong commitment to completing his schoolwork and has received all A’s and B’s on his most recent report card!
