BENEFITING: CORAZON COMMUNITY SERVICES
Corazón Community Services mission is to improve the quality of life for children, youth and families through holistic social services offered in a culturally sensitive environment. We are currently looking to re-vamp and purchase new desktop computers for our youth to use during program. The computers are important for our youth to do homework and projects for school, especially for those with limited access to the technology available to them. Please help support our cause by giving today; every dollar helps us get closer to our goal.
Corazon Community Services has had a tremendous impact in the community of Cicero. Since it opened its doors in 2003, Corazon has served over 195,400 youth and families (73,400 individuals received direct services and 122,000 community members impacted via community education & events) and has had a direct impact on the reduction of gang violence, the reduction of teen pregnancy, the increase in education and outreach on HIV and helped launch several community initiatives in collaboration with other community partners. While the state has been unable to pass a permanent state budget, the affects have been felt across many non-profits, including Corazon. Although committed to providing vital services to young people in the community, for more than a year Corazon has had to scale back some of its services due to the state budget crisis. Every contribution will help restore dollars to the Violence Prevention programs, the Education and Leadership programs and Health services. These services are life-saving and life-changing for Cicero youth and families.
