For Every Child A Helping Hand

Lakeside Community Committee

Lakeside Community Committee is an important social service and economic anchor in the Chicago land area that has provided its surrounding communities with a broad spectrum of child and family-oriented programs and services since its inception in 1964. 

Lakeside Community Committee is contracted by the Illinois Department of Children and Family services (the Department) to provide foster care, kinship care, transitional living and independent living services to abused and neglected children and youth who can no longer be safely maintained in their birth parent’s home.  The age of the clients Lakeside services can range from newborn until the courts determine that wardship should be terminated—never exceeding twenty-one years of age.

Lakeside Community Committee maintains the leadership, staff, workforce, manpower and facilities to ensure that our clients are serviced sufficiently and the agency remains in compliance with all governing standards and regulations.


Lakeside Community Committee is on a mission to enhance the quality of life for children and families by inspiring hope, empowerment, and growth within all whom we serve.


Our Vision is for Lakeside Community Committee to be an agency that is recognized as a leader in the delivery of high-quality human services in the area of child welfare, welfare reform, and youth programming
