  • FergusonCares is named after John Ferguson, father of two of our board members. Our Chicago based nonprofit’s name is a tribute to the life of a gentle, kind and loving man.
    FergusonCares objective is to ease homelessness and hunger for all children, while being committed to providing a healthier environment for all children. FergusonCares strives to implement practical, inexpensive solutions which deliver results in making the world a better place for all children.
    Our nonprofit FergusonCares, is known internally and informally in the community as "fc". The seeds of our non-profit were planted 10 years previously, after the U.S economy entered a recession, it soon became very apparent that we needed more committed action to address some of the issues Cook County is facing, regarding homeless families, and regarding the safety of our public air and water. There is an immediate need for more vegetation, trees specifically to recover our polluted water, air. Trees have been shown to promote health & well-being.

  • After working on numerous self-funded and volunteer urban cleanup projects, as well as community gardens and village beautification initiatives over the last 10 years, our board members decided it was time to get serious and commit to offering our unique blend of ideas, solutions and determination. In addition over the years we have distributed clothes, shoes and food to those in need, while offering informal help, counseling and a loving ear.    

  • All of FergusonCares projects have children's well-being at the core of their mission.
