A House in Austin is a home base for a community of parenting support serving families on Chicago’s west side. We were founded on a simple idea: every family, every child deserves the same opportunities for high-quality early learning, nurturing support, and parent education.
Our home at 533 N. Pine Ave. in Chicago will be a safe space where parents can explore the pathways of programming. The house will contain a parent meeting room, Discovery Studio for kids to explore, a Music Studio, 2 therapy rooms, a therapy playroom, and a full kitchen. With the house, we will be able to expand our programming to include additional parent groups, nutrition classes, and open play. Additionally, there will be more opportunities for evening programming. We are looking forward to using the space to partner with community organizations, which will allow families to receive therapy and early intervention services within the safe environment of the house.
Renovation has begun, but to get the doors open, and expand the number of families we serve, your help is needed today.
The Founding 100 Circle sponsorship is a singular opportunity to be part of a better foundation for families. By making a donation of $1,000, you will make a significant impact as we work to renovate our future parent-child center. To honor your generosity, a personalized brick paver will be featured in a dedicated donor space on the grounds of the house, and your name will be displayed on the Donor Tree in the foyer of the house, as well as featured with gratitude on our website.
We provide vital parenting tools, programs, and people to nurture and spark parent and child well being for families on the west side of Chicago. Our mission is to nurture secure bonds for healthy families and bright futures.
