Thank you to our 500 guests who joined us in placing children first in our homes, schools, and communities.
Erikson at the Forefront
Investing in early childhood isn’t a should, it’s a must. Children in Chicago and around the country face many challenges — from high rates of poverty to starting school already behind.
Watch how Erikson is leading the way to a better future. The video was generously produced by AdelsteinListon.
