Get involved and help us support children and families in overcoming challenging behavioral issues. We offer families hope as we help children interact with peers, parents and teachers in positive, healthy ways that will improve their chances for success in school and other areas of life. Tuesday’s Child is committed to helping build strong families, which in turn will lead to creating stronger communities.

Get Involved: Donate
A donation to Tuesday’s Child helps families throughout Chicago access our evidence-based Behavioral Intervention program. We provide over $150,000 a year in scholarships to families. The  average scholarship is $400/month. Providing high-quality programming to families can be expensive, $800/month to be exact, and few families can afford to access these services. With your help, we can be sure that all families, regardless of income, will be supported. Tuesday’s Child is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All contributions are tax-deductible. The need is clear, our response is excellent.
