About Brightpoint

At Brightpoint, formerly known as Children’s Home & Aid, you have the choice of either home-based or center-based programming services.

Our Viva home-based programming offers weekly home visits with a dedicated home visitor who provides coaching and mentoring on parenting supports and child development. Our aim is to help your child achieve their developmental milestones and goals, preparing them for a life-long foundational joy of learning.

Our center-based program operates at our Mitzi Freidheim Englewood Child & Family Center, located at 1701 West 63rd Street Chicago, IL 60636. Our center-based program offers families individualized experiences for their children helping foster well rounded growth and development. Children participate in music, art, language, literacy, dramatic play, math, science, and computer activities.
