The Chicago office of NPH USA was founded in 1999. 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!

Virtual Cooking Class – June 29, 2020
On June 29th we cooked with Chef Carlos Lopez Muñoz from Chicago’s finest Leña Brava. Working and cooking in the kitchen plays a HUGE roll in the NPH world. We had fun sharing this experience with you. Thank you to all our chefs who helped us raise over $580 to support the pequeños of NPH and their healthy nutrition. Remember – Cooking is LOVE made visible. We hope we can meet in the kitchen again soon!
