At The Paramount Group, we celebrate a lot of days; we love any excuse to celebrate! However, there is one day that is especially meaningful to us – Giving Tuesday
Founded in 2012, Giving Tuesday is a movement that aims to inspire and engaged others to give back and support critical organizations and nonprofits. It’s held annually on the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving, a time when many people are focused on shopping for the holiday season. You can learn more about its origins here.
Paramount Serves is a cornerstone of The Paramount Group; we measure our success not just by numbers and figures, but how much we can give back. While we engage with many essential organizations across Chicagoland and beyond, we have the great delight of partnering with several charities whose causes align with our core values and mission. Some of our top partners include Tickled Pink for Bright Pink, Hephzibah Children’s Association, Step Up Women’s Network, Best Buddies, Wish Upon A Wedding, and Growing Home.
Today we want to feature a partner we admire tremendously: Hephzibah Children’s Association.
Hephzibah Children’s Association provides several services for children and families. Founded in 1897, this Oak Park-based organization has a children’s home that offers a variety of critical assistance for young children who have experienced neglect, abuse, and trauma. Home Group Residence provides long-term therapeutic support to the children who need it the most. The Foster Care Program provides licensing and support to foster families and children during times of transition. Family Services, Counseling, Crisis Intervention, and Diagnostic Support are other critical services provided by the charity to ensure help at every level. Hephzibah is also an important community organization to Oak Park children and families with their after-school and summer Day Care services; offered on a sliding scale.
