The Infant Welfare Society of Chicago (IWS) is a non-profit organization that provides medical, dental and mental health services to the underprivileged women and children of Chicago. In 2011, IWS celebrated 100 years of service.
IWS provides affordable, accessible health care to Chicago's immigrant neighborhoods. Most of our patients come to us from an area encompassing the communities of Logan Square, Irving Park, West Town, Hermosa, Belmont-Cragin, Albany Park, Portage Park, and Humboldt Park, although our programs are open to all low-income Chicagoans.
Our services are in as much demand today as they were in 1911, because we have continually adapted to the changing needs of mothers and children, to changing communities and to changing times. IWS's staff of over 100 also offers such innovative programs as children's asthma management, instructional home visits to pregnant women and new mothers, vision screening, lead poisoning prevention and treatment.
By supporting IWS, you are directly benefiting the lives of Chicagoans who previously had limited or no access to quality healthcare. Your donations will help ensure that we can keep providing our services to more than 13,000 residents annually for the next 100 years.
