Family Matters partners with youth and families in northeast Chicago to address and overcome structural racism and systemic oppression to build an equitable society.

Family Matters’ Walkathon raises critical funds to support our youth programs:

  • Family Connections (after-school literacy and leadership program for youth in grades 1-6)
  • Boys to Men (Teen Boys Program)
  • That Goddess Power (Teen Girls Program)
  • Evening Tutoring (one-on-one tutoring/mentoring for 90 minutes each week)

Thank you for partnering with Family Matters!
