The donations to Corazon Community Services will help the organization sustain vital programs that provide life-changing services to youth in the community. We encourage everyone to stay connected with the agency and get involved in any capacity. Donating and/or volunteering with Corazon Community Services, will help the organization continue to keep its doors open and provide life-changing services to youth in the community. To learn more on Corazon Community Services visit www.corazoncs.org or follow us on facebook at www.facebook.com/corazoncs. #GivingConTodoElCorazon The agency has had tremendous impact in 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.
