With your support, we help thousands of children and families living in some of Chicago's most challenged neighborhoods defy the odds.

Our cradle-to-career services reduce infant mortality, teach parenting skills, and nurture babies and toddlers so they can thrive; provide safe passage so children can attend school, and give them the support system to ensure they graduate from high school and have options for college and career; offer vocational skills training and job placement to prepare young people to support themselves and their families; give a second chance to those who have lost hope of ever escaping a life of poverty and adversity.

All SGA services are provided free of charge. With your help, we are transforming communities one child, one adult and one family at a time. Read our success stories.

Whether you make an unrestricted gift to serve those in greatest need or designate your gift to benefit our services, your support is crucial to our mission. Giving to SGA can take many forms, from cash donations to securities and trusts. Whichever method you choose, SGA thanks you for your generosity.

The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.
- Jane Addams, SGA co-founder
