200 NEW PATIENTS A MONTH ENROLL AT INFANT WELFARE FOR ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE HIGH QUALITY CARE


In fiscal year 2011, the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago celebrated 100 years of service. Our services are in as much demand today as they were in 1911, because we have continually adapted to the changing needs of mothers and children, to changing communities and to changing times.


The Infant Welfare Society of Chicago provides quality, community based healthcare to under and uninsured, under served children and women who would otherwise lack access to basic medical services.  

IWS IS MEETING RISING EXPECTATIONS

AUXILIARY


The IWS Auxiliary, established concurrently with IWS, plays a vital role in the success of IWS.  More than 750 members from 16 area chapters volunteer thousands of hours and host fundraisers that raise hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of the health care services IWS provides.
