Our Mission & Vision
The mission of the Juvenile Protective Association is to improve the social and emotional well-being and functioning of vulnerable children so they can reach their fullest potential at home, in school, and in our communities. We accomplish this by providing therapeutic counseling services to at-risk children and families, conducting research, sharing knowledge, and providing expert consultation and guidance to others serving them.
JPA's vision is that vulnerable children and families in Chicago's most underserved neighborhoods will have access to the highest quality mental health services.
"America's future will be determined by the home and the school. The child becomes largely what he is taught; hence we must watch what we teach, and how we live"
"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men"
