Dear friend,
 
Thank you for your support of ChildServ.
 
This Father’s Day, as we celebrate the many ways that dads make a difference in their children’s lives, we would like to highlight how our programs engage fathers in their children’s development and education, strengthening parental and family bonds.
In early childhood:
 
Dads…
  • learn how to deal with stress, set goals, solve problems and identify their parenting roles.
  • read to their children, which builds vocabularies and promotes critical thinking.
  • work with their spouse as a parenting team to decide what they want for their children and how both can be actively involved in raising them.
  • build the foundation of a healthy family, learning the importance of nutrition, physical activity, sleep, a primary care physician and completing health screens and immunizations.
 
In foster care and adoption:
 
Dads…
  • provide love, stability and support for the children in our care, who have experienced trauma.
  • learn to understand a child’s development’s from a trauma-informed perspective, developing healthy, open lines of communication with the children.
  • actively engage in their children’s education, ensuring daily attendance and completion of homework, to encourage learning and growth.
 
In Emerge:
 
Dads…
  • learn about educational opportunities, and receive employment assistance.
  • develop life skills such as budgeting, financial literacy, and meal planning to improve the family’s self-sufficiency.
  • receive clinical, housing and parental support to provide stability for the family.

2016 HIPPY End of the Year Celebration
On June 8, 80 children and families from our 3-5-year-old program, HIPPY, gathered at Purcell Hall in Chicago to celebrate their progress toward school readiness throughout this past year.
 
Our President and CEO, Dan Kotowski, presented the children with certificates to mark their achievement as well as a goodie bag full of fun, educational activities and books for them to read over the summer.
 
We are proud of the tremendous work by the children and their parents’ commitment to their kids’ education and development!
