Xilin Association

Founded in Naperville by Ms. Linda Yang in 2003 Xilin Association is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization committed to serving the needs of families in the greater Chicago area.

It started out as a Chinese language school in 1989. After three decades of growth, Xilin has now become a multi-purpose organization which provides multiple social services, including kids education, adult day care for seniors, in-home service for seniors, cross-cultural performing arts and community health. They also provide a Welcome Center program for newcomers and immigrants.

The organization hosts the Xilin Lantern Festival, a major annual event that has become a cultural tradition in Naperville, celebrating the Chinese culture through games, costumes, arts, crafts and performances.  Performers come from across the country and from China to put on a spectacular show in honor of the Chinese New Year at the Yellow Box in Naperville.
