Mission, Vision, and Values

Our mission is to assist individuals and families who, because of disabilities or other limiting conditions, need help in finding and pursuing paths leading to healthy, productive and fulfilling lives.


Ada S. McKinley, Chicago social reformer and settlement leader, founded the South Side Settlement House in 1919. Her settlement house and community programs played a vital role in Chicago’s South Side communities during the post-war period and era of heavy African American migration from the South to Chicago. Ada S. McKinley helped soothe the tensions of the racial turmoil of her age and addressed community needs with programs and services in areas of shelter, jobs, and food for displaced families from the South, recreational programs for returning soldiers, infant welfare, clubs and activities for boys and girls, and literacy, crafts and trades, training for adults which they live and work.
