Raising children truly does take a village. Join us for our next meeting!
Smart Love Family Services welcomes families in the greater Chicago and Oak Park areas to be part of It Takes A Village, a free-of-charge program for parents and youth of color that is uniquely tailored to fit their needs. Smart Love’s dedicated professionals lead Group meetings, providing a caring, confidential, and non-judgmental environment for parents and youth to share their experiences, ask questions, and express their hopes. Together, the groups build community, gain knowledge, and set the course for happy futures.
Parents and youth come to separate Group sessions to gain ideas, knowledge and encouragement in dealing with issues such as racial identity, inequalities, racist attitudes and systems, and current affairs.
