The goal of Kabod House International is to become a trailblazing organization that offers unique and needed services to women, girls, parents, and children in the Chicagoland/South Suburban Cook County area. Our programs include distributing new bras and underwear and feminine hygiene products to women and girls living in poverty, as well as educating them on reproductive health. Every year we provide Winter coats and toys for homeless and foster care children at a local elementary school partner. We also supply baby diapers and wipes for financially struggling parents.
