Overview

Nearly 90 years ago, our founder, Mrs. Ada Sophia McKinley, a retired school teacher and pioneer social worker, organized a settlement house in Chicago's Bronzeville community to meet the pressing needs of returning World War I soldiers and their families and to help these individuals integrate into and become productive citizens of the city of Chicago.

Since that beginning, Ada S. McKinley Community Services, Inc. has expanded from a settlement house to 43 sites across six divisions and has become a comprehensive, fully-accredited, human services agency.

Included among those sites are six Head Start programs; one school for children with multiple disabilities; one charter school for high school drop outs; seven janitorial work-training sites for adults with disabilities; one foster care emergency shelter; and many other services and programs.

In fiscal year 2009, Ada S. McKinley Community Services, Inc.:

  • Provided emergency food assistance to 5,000 individuals through our food pantry
  • Offered tutoring, life planning and college preparation and placement services to over 2,400 middle and high school students

  • Provided early childhood development service to over 300, 0-5 year-olds in our Head Start programs
