Almost Home Kids, an organization devoted to transitional care for children with complicated health needs, will host the grand opening of its new care facility in the Ronald McDonald House building in Chicago on Monday, Sept.17, 2012.
Almost Home Kids, the first facility of its kind in the nation, serves as a post-hospital care setting where families of children who are medically fragile can learn to care for any special needs their child's condition requires in a home-like setting. It also provides respite care for the families of children who require around the clock nursing care. Almost Home Kids has been operating a facility in Naperville since 1999.
As part of the grand opening of their new Chicago facility, Almost Home Kids staff will provide guests with a tour. Governor Pat Quinn, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, State Senator Kwame Raoul, State Representative Patti Bellock and Alderman Brendan Reilly are all invited to attend with Dr. SAndy Goldberg of NBC5 serving as Emcee for the celebration.
The new facility is located at 211 East Grand Avenue, Floor 6 of the new Ronald McDonald House, Chicago, IL 60611. The grand opening will take place on September 17, 2012 from 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM. Visit www.almosthomekids.org for more information.
