Juvenile Protection Association Donate Now


The mission of the Juvenile Protective Association (JPA) 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 their communities.

This is accomplished by providing therapeutic counseling services to at-risk children and families, conducting research, sharing knowledge, and providing expert consultation and guidance to others serving these children and families.

Help JPA Meet an Important Challenge Grant!

JPA recently received from an anonymous donor an important multi-year challenge grant award of $30,000 a year for two years (total - $60,000). This is a 1 to 1 match up to $7,500 per JPA donor annually for $30,000 a year. New gifts and increased contributions to JPA from existing donors will help meet this significant challenge match. When met, the $60,000 challenge grant from an anonymous funder will support JPA’s award winning Building Bridges to North Lawndale (BBNL) program. This wonderful award will have great impact in building new resources to support Chicago’s distressed children and families in great need.

For more information or if you would like to make a contribution in support of JPA’s challenge grant, please contact JPA’s Chief Development Officer  David Wiercinski at 312-698-6937 or davidw@juvenile.org.
