Children's Home + Aid Celebrates 75 Years

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A local organization is celebrating 75 years of helping children in Rockford find a home during a crisis.

Children's Home + Aid first opened its doors in Rockford back in 1939 with only three people working in the office. Today the organization has more than 100 workers and they held an open house to celebrate the milestone anniversary.

Since the 1960's more than 2,000 kids have found a loving family through the agency's adoption and foster program.
