For more than 120 years, Chicago Commons' mission has been to partner with individuals, families, and communities to overcome poverty, discrimination, and isolation. Our programs are designed to help children, families and seniors GO further to live richer, more fulfilling lives. From our first settlement house, we've centered ourselves in underserved communities to give our neighbors the tools and skills they need to reach their greatest potential.

Center Stage for Access and Inclusion
In an effort to encourage Chicagoans and visitors alike to gain a greater appreciation for the beauty and power of inclusion in every facet of our lives, The Chicago Lighthouse will host a unique three-hour summer spectacular concert Saturday, September 14 at Navy Pier featuring performers with and without disabilities. “Center Stage for Access and Inclusion,” which will take place from 11 am to 2 pm on the Navy Pier South Dock (adjacent to Ferris Wheel), will feature stellar performances from singing sensations and epic dancing to comedy and storytelling. Special guest performer will be Avett Ray, a seven-year-old piano YouTube sensation who happens to be visually impaired. Serving as emcee will be one of Chicago’s most engaging personalities, Leon Rogers of WGCI.
