Alert Protective has always been an active and proud member of Chicago’s community. We’ve called this city home since our founding nearly 40 years ago, even longer as residents. As part of the community, we always do our best to contribute to it however we can.
We recently became aware of one of Chicago’s most dynamic and impactful charities, A House in Austin. Founded by Erica Hilgart, the grassroots organization takes a two-generational approach to address the needs of children and parents.
They offer a wide variety of early childhood development classes and programs, including music, art, and education workshops. These workshops are designed to foster a foundation of success for both children and parents.
A House in Austin runs these classes out of their beautiful center in the heart of Chicago’s Austin neighborhood. With their philosophy, “Nurture. Educate. Support,” as a guide, they strive to reinforce mindful parenting to create loving bonds and positive family memories.
Like every charity, AHIA does its best to stretch a limited budget to help as many people as possible. To help them stretch their budget a little further, Alert Protective was thrilled to donate fire and security systems for their building.
We hope that doing so allows A House in Austin to support their fellow Chicagoans even more than they already do. And we’re happy to know that the incredible people of AHIA, the work that they do, and the families they support will be that much more secure because of our donation.
If you’re interested in learning more about the amazing work that AHIA is doing in Chicago, please visit their website. And, if you have the means, consider donating to help them continue offering free programming to families in our community. Every little bit helps.
