The Reva & David Logan Foundation Funds
JPA's Connect to Kids (C2K) in Altgeld-Riverdale

#

#

PreK and Kindergarten families and children stop by JPA’s table to learn about C2K, and enjoy a summer activity pack donated by JPA’s Auxiliary Board of volunteers.

JPA is grateful for the generous support from the Reva & David Logan Foundation that will enable us to provide weekly consultation sessions to PreK & Kindergarten teachers, parent community groups, and classroom programs for children in the Altgeld-Riverdale communities over the next three years in an innovative trauma-informed program called Connect to Kids (C2K).

C2K is designed to help teachers and families build strong, positive relationships with their young children during the foundational years of school, enabling children to develop a love of learning and to form the building blocks for social-emotional well-being and functioning.

Counseling & Treatment

JPA’s therapeutic approach involves harnessing children’s natural drive to learn, to succeed and to engage in positive relationships, while lowering psychological barriers that impede progress.

With over a decade of work in schools in some of Chicago’s most challenged neighborhoods, JPA has learned that children are ultimately motivated to learn and thrive more by positive relationships than material rewards.

JPA not only provides therapy to children, but also helps educators discover new strategies and interventions they can use with one child or an entire classroom.

Founded by Jane Addams and her colleagues during the Progressive Era, JPA is a reflection of their desire to uplift society and their belief in the possibility of reform. In its earliest incarnation, JPA provided the city’s first probation officers for children.

JPA serves more than 2,000 children and families each year.
