Our Community


Woodlawn is located on Chicago’s south side, adjacent to Hyde Park and the University of Chicago. The neighborhood has been home to noted authors, playwrights, athletes, and community activists. In the sixties, Woodlawn was at the height of its population, with many businesses, restaurants, and jazz clubs lining busy streets. Today almost all the businesses are gone, along with jobs and opportunities for many families. Beginning on 61st Street, the vision is to catalyze revitalization through reducing violence while creating pathways to opportunity for youth and adults.
