Creatively Caring works with local businesses and non-profit organizations to enrich our community through fun, family service projects. Diverse families with children of all ages are encouraged to participate in our projects which help people, animals and the environment. By taking an active part in community service, our youth develop self-confidence and cultivate a greater sense of responsibility, tolerance and empathy for others. When we plant these values as seeds in our children, they grow with our children and eventually become an integral part of their core beliefs. Children then feel empowered to create positive change and to make a difference. In turn, we strengthen our families and our communities.
We serve the Greater Chicago area, including the North Shore, the northern Cook County suburbs and the southern Lake County suburbs.
