Welcome! For more than a century the Abraham Lincoln Centre has been at the forefront of serving Chicago's neediest South Side families and communities. From a single settlement house founded in 1905, the Abraham Lincoln Centre has grown to encompass 13 sites and offer an array of programs and services that help some 7,000 individuals and families each year.

We are proud to:

  • Deliver comprehensive, high-quality care and educational services for Children & Youth.

  • Create safe opportunities for Adolescents & Teens to develop their academic, leadership and life skills.

  • Provide supportive housing, therapeutic training, care-giving and case management services to People with Special Needs and their families.

  • Offer resources, education and activities that assist Adults & Seniors in living healthy, productive lives.
