Founded in 1999, the Midwest regional office of NPH USA is located in Chicago, Illinois. It encompasses the states of Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Tennessee. Annual events include a Pequeño Tour featuring a dance and music troupe from one of the NPH homes and a Gala in the Fall.

Locally, Midwesterners have answered the call to help children in need. Our donors have been key in sending over 20 containers of medical supplies and earthquake relief items to Haiti since 2010, hosting a pequeño from El Salvador for a series of oral and facial operations at Shriners Children’s Hospital in Chicago, sending pequeños to university, and rescuing thousands of children from poverty.

NPH raises the kids and we raise the funds, and we need your help! We welcome everyone who would like to get involved. Register online today to volunteer!
