Welcome to Almost Home Kids


OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois is proud to offer an Almost Home Kids location – one of only three in the nation – in Peoria.

Almost Home Kids provides transitional care in a home-like setting for children with complex medical needs, as well as training and respite care for their families. Funded entirely through community donations, Almost Home Kids is a 12-bedroom, 21,000-square-foot home.

The population of children with medical complexities is on the rise with over 14,000 living in Illinois alone. This statistic combined with the other two Almost Home Kids locations in Naperville and Chicago, Illinois, supported the need to have this service in central Illinois.
