JPA's Announces Collaboration with SocialWorks!
Weâre proud to be one of the cohorts of SocialWorks' new initiative, My State of Mind-a guidebook listing mental wellness service providers that will be available both physically & digitally.
Below is a video of the SocialWorksâ Summit featuring founder, Chance the Rapper, explaining more about this great collaboration (we are mentioned around the 23 min. mark)!
Counseling & Treatment
JPAâs therapeutic approach involves harnessing childrenâs natural drive to learn, to succeed and to engage in positive relationships, while lowering psychological barriers that impede progress.
With over a decade of work in schools in some of Chicagoâs most challenged neighborhoods, JPA has learned that children are ultimately motivated to learn and thrive more by positive relationships than material rewards.
JPA not only provides therapy to children, but also helps educators discover new strategies and interventions they can use with one child or an entire classroom.
The Learning Center
Information resources for parents, caregivers and professionals
JPA believes in partnerships where everyone - teachers, support staff, parents and caregivers, and even the children - can contribute to building healthy communities and positive relationships. JPA's Learning Center is aimed at professionals in child welfare, educators and families. 323-293-6491
Serving communities for over 117 years
Throughout its 117 year history, JPA has been at the forefront in addressing child abuse and neglect. Founded by Jane Addams and her colleagues during the Progressive Era, JPA is a reflection of their desire to uplift society and their belief in the possibility of reform. In its earliest incarnation, JPA provided the cityâs first probation officers for children.
JPA serves more than 2,000 children and families each year.
