Located in the Austin neighborhood, right on Chicago Avenue, the Transformation Center opened in 2013. This building serves as New Moms’ flagship site and contains the majority of our office space for staff, meeting rooms for our supportive programs, a full-service kitchen and cafeteria, private courtyard, and 40 apartments for young families.
Our Oak Park building opened in 2019. From here, New Moms serves families in eight communities in the near-West suburbs including: Oak Park, River Forest, Maywood, Cicero, Berwyn, Bellwood, and Melrose Park. The first floor includes program space, staff offices, and a children’s play area. The second through fourth floors include 18 apartments of permanent supportive housing.
New Moms’ innovative social enterprise, Bright Endeavors, is where New Moms’ mission truly shines. Behind the company’s popular collection of artisanal scented candles are motivated moms in our paid job training program, learning comprehensive skills, gaining confidence, and forging their career paths. New Moms acquired Bright Endeavors in 2010, and the current facility is located in East Garfield Park.
