We Bring the Words to Them

Parent Testimonial


All it takes is a little “brain exercise” – via talking, playing, reading and singing.  At Words on Wheels, that’s what we do. Our volunteers go to places in our local communities where at-risk babies are, and who are not getting as much “brain exercise” as they could.  They bring each child bubbles, a puppet, a musical instrument, and a book at each visit, and engage in play.  It is our goal that all children be provided with early childhood (brain development) opportunities before they start school.


How can you help?

You can join our team of Volunteers and schedule opportunities at our various sites in Waukegan, Zion, and North Chicago to spend time with at-risk children.   See more information in the "Get Involved" page of this website.
