Parents’ Association for Children with Hemiplegia and/or Stroke (PACHS) is a Chicago area 
support and information group formed in April of 2002.   Our goal is to give families of children 
with hemiplegia, hemiparesis, diplegia and/or stroke a chance to connect and interact in person.  
We provide family support and local resource information, parent meetings with guest speakers 
and family outings.  We started with a core group of six families.  We now have almost 40, and 
continue to grow.  Families come from the metropolitan Chicago area, northwestern Illinois, and 
northeastern Indiana to meet and share a common bond.   Parents are introduced to the group by 
the efforts of current participants, who network with doctors, therapists and service providers.  
PACHS is a self-sustaining group, relying on members to donate their services in order to further 
the mission of awareness and support.
