Our mission is to empower our neighbors to become catalysts of and participants in a flourishing Southside Chicago community.
Every summer, violence increases in the city. This trend is particularly alarming when you consider the groups of children eager to play outside on their blocks. With kids out of school, they are at greater risk of being hurt or killed on the streets.
You can help stand in the way of that violence.
This summer, Hope Works and Living Hope Church are hosting summer camp for more than 50 kids from the neighborhood. With the theme “The Beautiful City”, kids will have the opportunity to explore their dream career and build a paper city together to help them understand the value of community.
But we need your help to support this opportunity.
It costs $475 to support one child's summer at camp.
Will you sponsor a camper?
We work with people one-on-one to design specific solutions to long-term unemployment and holistic family flourishing. Our operations include case management services, employment services, and housing development and youth programming through partnership with Living Hope Church.
Hope Works is built on the premise that jobs are critical to a healthy family and community. When a family has a steady income, it permeates to their health, their children's education, and the family's overall well-being. At Hope Works, we believe that hope truly does work.
