About Us

Initially conceived in the late 1990's, the concept for Through A Child's Eyes was developed and realized by a number of individuals who provided service coordination for children through the State of Illinois, Department of Human Services - Bureau of Early Intervention.

At that time, the primary focus of Through A Child's Eyes was on children considered at-risk. Through A Child's Eyes was initially founded because of the recognition that children who are at-risk have an immediate need for services to be initiated that respond to their identified areas of risk.

The focus and mission of Through A Child's Eyes has broadened to include individuals and families whose socio-economic status and developmental issues have resulted in barriers for their advancement toward independence.

Through A Child's Eyes was incorporated as a Not for Profit Corporation on 12-29-1999.
