Almost Home Kids began 20 years ago as the dream of two mothers who longed to create a place in the community, where families of children with medical complexities could turn for care to avoid prolonged hospitalization or long term care institutions. With the grassroots support of the community, and generous donors like you, today Almost Home Kids has homes in Naperville, Chicago and Peoria with more locations on the horizon.

Become a Sustainer Donor – Consider $20 a month to mark our 20th Anniversary!

Your financial support makes an impact. Here are a few examples of how your monthly gift changes lives:
$10: Your support helps to ensure daily essentials such as diapers, supplies and formula are always available for the children in our care.
$20: Safe, reliable transportation gives families one less thing to worry about. Your gift helps to provide gas cards, parking vouchers or public transit passes for those with no access to a motor vehicle.
$50: Therapy tools such as art and craft supplies, adaptive toys and sensory books allow children to express themselves through art and play. Our Child Life Specialist and volunteers use these supplies as part of their interaction with the children in our care and their siblings.
$100: Adaptive equipment like positioning wedges, mats and chairs are vitally important to help provide the most comfortable positioning assistance to each child. Your gift helps us provide this much needed support.

Please help us sustain the lives of the children we serve by providing them the essential medical care and supplies they need.
