Our Charities

Adler on the Park Showcase House for Charity is proud to support Big Shoulders Fund and Thresholds charities.

For more than thirty-five years, Big Shoulders Fund has helped Chicago’s children in need achieve their dreams through access to a quality, values based education. We accomplish this by investing more than $20 million annually in scholarship support and academic enrichment for students, operational improvements for schools, leadership development programs for the next generation of school leaders, and academic programs and professional development for teachers.

For more information,  please visit their website. Big Shoulders is located at 212 West Van Buren, Suite 900, Chicago, IL 60607 (312-751-8337).


Thresholds is fighting to transform the lives of people living with mental illnesses and substance use
disorders. We break cycles of poverty and unemployment. We are path breaking in our
innovative research and advocacy.

We also make opportunities. Opportunities for housing, employment, and recovery. Opportunities for families to reconnect. Above all we make hope possible.

Thresholds provides services and resources for persons with serious mental illnesses and substance use disorders in Illinois. We work with many populations, including youth and young adults, veterans, young mothers, deaf, and individuals experiencing homelessness, among others.

We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to live an independent, healthy life.
