Amidst the scorching heat of summer, our team is on fire! The ELC school year ended with a fun end-of-year celebration, and we’re excited for the mid-August preschool graduation. Child Thrive was busy managing two summer camps. Our Foster Care team helped foster children prepare for their college journey, while Publicis Sapient’s 45 interns infused fresh energy into our mission. August brings a preschool graduation and a visit from Mesirow staff, dedicated to our mission. Grateful for the impact we’re making and eager for the future!

Read on to enjoy all that transpired this month and to learn what’s ahead.
