Our Founder, Patricia Frontain, lost her son to a senseless act of violence, took her grief and turned it into a powerful non-profit to help at-risk teens. PATRICK LIVES ON is a group of loving and determined citizens taking a stand in support of the safety of all school-age children in the Chicagoland area with funding for after-school programs.

PATRICK LIVES ON stands by its motto “BE STRONG. USE WORDS. NOT VIOLENCE.”

Patrick Lives On has been providing financial assistance to junior high school students for extra-curricular activities enabling them to lead positive and productive paths in life since 2016. We rely on the kindness of our donors to help at-risk teens.
