BENEFITING: DR LUCY LANG-CHAPPELL HOUSING COMPLEX INC
Andrew Ryal wrote -
The Dr Lucy Lang-Chappell Housing Complex is a fifty-two unit housing development providing low income housing and related programs that meet the physical and emotional needs of the developmentally challenged individual. It is the desire of the board of directors of this housing complex to enrich the quality of life for the developmentally challenged residents to include but not limited to community integration, self-empowerment and participation in American political activities that affect their personal lives as well as that of the community in which they reside. These freedoms of pursuit will enhance their development and viability as productive citizens of the community. Unfortunately, the residential complex is located in the low economic community of the West Garfield Park community on the west side of Chicago, Illinois. In the neighborhood where the complex is located, there is the persistent element of crime which endangers the safety and welfare of the residents, prohibiting them from exercising their right to community inclusion and self-empowerment, thus leading to the emphatic need for a twenty passenger van or bus.
