On June 07, 2019, El Hogar del Nino hosted a special ribbon-cutting ceremony on the opening of their new gross motor room. Many honored guests were present during the special ribbon-cutting ceremony, including Lowis & Gellen’s Gerald Haberkorn.
The new gross motor room was made possible by the Carl R. Hendrickson Family Foundation and will support the physical development of the toddlers enrolled in their organization.
El Hogar Del Nino (“the home of the child”), has been an active nonprofit organization since 1972 when it was started by a group of Pilsen mothers who were in need of child care due to the increase of households becoming dual-income. Gathering together, the devoted parents opened the first bilingual and affordable daycare in the community. The organization has provided early educational learning and access to family resources for hundreds of families in Pilsen and Little Village.
