This year’s event will benefit the Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice Child & Family Center. The Rice Center provides a temporary home and therapeutic setting for many of Illinois’ young children in foster care with severe mental health and behavior challenges. The residential care and treatment center helps kids ages 6 to 14 move forward and work towards a goal of transitioning to a stable, loving home. Located in a residential neighborhood within the Evanston community, Children’s Home & Aid has provided residential services to children at this location for 110 years. 


Proceeds from the Windy City Ball event will support the programs, activities, and services the Rice Center provides. 

Programming at the Rice Center takes a holistic treatment approach designed to treat and transition youth back to a family setting. Residents and families receive a range of therapeutic services designed to address their emotional and behavioral challenges while providing a supportive environment that encourages personal growth. 

The following services are offered at the Rice Center:
