We Transform Communities
Cultural values are preserved and neighborhoods are enriched through our community-based approach. We respond to the needs of the residents.
We Create Opportunities
We help people across the Midwest improve their lives—and achieve the American dream. We’re a catalyst for economic prosperity.
We Build & Revitalize
We’re one of the largest community development organizations in the nation. We create affordable housing in Latino neighborhoods in and beyond Chicago including those in Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
We’re a catalyst for economic prosperity and community growth. It takes jobs to make communities work.
Community development is more than laying bricks and mortar, it’s about creating opportunities for successful living. That’s why we hire from within the neighborhoods we work in. We also help students prepare for tomorrow’s opportunities by offering scholarships and educational programs through our community partners.
“It’s all about making something of yourself.” – Elizabeth Solano from Chicago, IL
