The Carole Robertson Center has served children and families from our original location on the Near West Side since our inception in 1976.

For nearly 40 years, the Center has been a reliable presence in a changing community. The Near West Side community has undergone tremendous change in recent years with expansion of the Illinois Medical District, the second largest in the country, and University of Illinois at Chicago, as well as the recent addition of several state and federal buildings. In addition to housing the Center’s administrative offices, this site houses the Center’s home visiting programs.

Programs offered at this location include:

  • Home Visiting
  • Family Child Care Home Network

In 2001, the Carole Robertson Center opened its North Lawndale site. This new facility expanded the capacity of the North Lawndale community to provide quality center-based child development programming and community development activities. The North Lawndale community consistently ranks among the highest concentration of impoverished families and incarceration, crime, and high school drop out rates in the city. 10,000 male residents are incarcerated, leaving 67 males to every 100 females in the community. North Lawndale suffered years of decline after mass moves to Chicago’s suburbs beginning in the 1950’s and riots after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination in 1968, but has begun to experience a period of growth and revitalization.

Programs offered at this location include:

  • Infant Toddler Development Program, ages 0-3
  • Early Childhood Education Program, ages 3-5
  • After School Enrichment Program, ages 6-12
