Supporting At-Risk Youth

Family Matters offers safe surroundings after school to Chicago youth in the low-income neighborhood of Rogers Park. Through our programs, children and teens ages 5-18 can discover new areas of interest, explore possibilities for their futures, take risks and set goals, all with the support of professional staff and volunteer tutors.

Every child has dreams. At Family Matters, children are given opportunities to explore those dreams and develop the skills they need to reach their goals. Students are engaged in initiatives that spark excitement, expand life skills (via resources and relationships), and foster critical inquiry. We also provide individualized one-on-one tutoring for 65 students each year.

Family Matters is founded upon a set of guiding principles that we call The Principles of Leadership. The staff, board, families, and volunteers all learn and utilize key social emotional skills: Positive Thinking & Language, Peaceful Conflict Resolution, and Responsible Decision Making.
