Catherine M. Lee Women's & Children's Center

The Catherine M. Lee Women's & Children's Center helps female immigrants gain basic skills in speaking, listening, reading, and writing English in order to increase their employability skills. Children ages 5 and younger are welcome to attend early childhood education classes while their mothers attend adult classes.

The Women's & Children's Center is grateful to agencies and organizations that provide other necessary social services, especially the Promotoras de Salud of Northwest Community Hospital. 


This project was made possible by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library (ISL), a division of the Office of the Secretary of State, using state funds designated for literacy. 

Approximately 25% of this program is paid with federal funds in the amount of $16,876.
