Grandma's Closet

Grandma's Closet at Chaddock is dedicated to the daily personal needs of our clients. Chaddock serves over 400 children daily in our Residential, Foster Care and School programs. We supply basic necessities such as hygiene supplies and clothing, as well as items for comfort such as pillows, blankets, stuffed animals, toys, and books. Our children access Grandma's Closet with the assistance of staff to ensure their needs are met. As the number of clients continues to grow, it is imperative that we maintain an adequate supply of Grandma's Closet items. For more information, contact Shawna Bunnell, Outreach & Church Relations Manager at 217.222.0034 ext 330 or email

Special Opportunities

Chaddock spends the vast majority of our charitable dollars and fees for service on direct care for our children. However, we also have special ongoing needs that aren't met by our general daily budget. Here are just a few of these special "capital" items which help us provide better service to the children and families in our care.​​ For more information, contact Jeff VanCamp, Executive Director at 217.222.0034 ext 328 or email


The environment we are able to provide our children can have a positive impact on their progress. Each of our cottages has various needs for upgrades/remodeling. These range in estimated price from $500 to $5000. Needs include:

  • Window replacement
  • Furniture replacement
  • Carpet/Flooring replacement

Agricultural Partnership

Our Ag Partnership is a network of grain producers and elevators throughout Illinois who support Chaddock’s mission. Producers donate grain to Chaddock at participating elevators. Chaddock sells the grain at current market prices and the funds are applied to the Chaddock’s Visitation fund.


Staff are working with older equipment, especially computers. Certain operating systems Chaddock uses are no longer supported by their manufacturers any more. Replacing these with CPU's or laptops will improve efficiency. At current count, we need to replace 25 desktop computers. In addition, we need to increase our digital storage and other technology capacities in order to meet the growing demand for our services.
