Since its inception, Sankofa has worked effortlessly with Chicago families to provide supportive services to help preserve, stabilize, reunify, and keep families intact by encouraging families in their desire to have better lives, helping them to identify their strengths, and assisting them to move towards self-sustainability.
“It takes a Village to Raise a Child”
We adopt a multi-generational, multi-service approach to help reduce the numbers of families involved in the child welfare and/or juvenile justice systems.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary – An advocate is
- a person who argues for or supports a cause or policy
- a person who works for a cause or group
- a person who argues for the cause of another person in a court of law
We need your help in advocating for the parents, grandparents, guardians and children that we serve.
