Our Mission, Vision and Values

A multi-ethnic group of elementary age children are playing with stackable toys in school at their desk.


ChildServ’s mission, since our founding in 1894, has been to help Chicagoland’s at-risk children and their families to build, achieve and sustain better lives.


We will be an innovative, nimble leader in providing high-quality, effective services to support children, youth and communities in meeting the ever-changing challenges of society.
