With school back in full swing, CPA is embracing the excitement of the season alongside our young students as they return to school. Over the past month, our activities have been abundant: from celebrating preschool graduates, to preparing our classrooms for the upcoming academic year. We’re also proud to share that one of our foster children has embarked on their college journey, while another dedicated client is progressing in her nursing studies. Guiding our families through their challenges and ensuring their successes is the core of our mission.

Our impact is amplified through collaborative partnerships with wonderful organizations such as Mesirow, Publicis Sapient, St. Pat’s, and Burns & McDonnell. Truly, the saying “it takes a village” resonates deeply with us, and we’re immensely appreciative of the collective support we receive.
