About Us

Our approach

Our Mission

To provide residents of Chicago's West Side - with emphasis on North Lawndale and East Garfield Park communities - with cross-generational services

With emphasis onĀ  the North Lawndale and East Garfield Park neighborhoods, we will eliminate barriers to accessing our digital society by teaching basic technical skills, reduce food insecurity by providing free meals and fundamental vegetable gardening and food preparation techniques, and enable educational advancement by delivering tutoring and college readiness programs. The culmination of these activities is a celebratory, community-based, annual parade and picnic in honor of Juneteenth

Our Vision

Spirit of Juneteenth is celebrated and realized in what will one day be known as Chicago's formerly most underserved communities

We see a time when economic, educational, and safety disparities have diminished, equity is exceling, yet the culture remains cultivated. The people are truly free.
