Almost Home Kids

Almost Home Kids’ mission is to provide transitional care in a home-like setting to children with complicated health needs, training for their families and respite care. AHK is a short-term community based pediatric healthcare facility that brings together Medical Professionals, Recreational Volunteers, Community Providers, Sponsors, Donors, Friends, Corporate and Civic Partners. AHK is licensed by the Department of Public Health.

A New Collaboration

After several years of planning, collaborating and construction, Almost Home Kids at OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois, is finally a reality. AHK opened its doors in October to children with medical complexities and their families living in Central Illinois. The new home, which is owned and operated by OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois, is considerably larger than the locations in Chicago and Naperville, with ample garden and green space surrounding the building as well as plenty of parking spaces for families and staff.
