One move to change the community
C24/7 has grown quickly. From our grassroots origins we now stand at a crossroads of great need and even greater opportunity. Our programs have wait-lists because we do not have the space to admit more children and job-seekers. Our
neighborhood has as many struggles as it has ever had. Our constituents have taken the first steps toward empowerment, but need much more support.
Our belief in a God of parent-like love compels us to take the next step as an organization and more fully reach, serve, and empower the North of Howard community of Rogers Park. Purchasing a building will allow us to do exactly that. The
opportunity exists for profound, long-lasting improvement in the structures, systems, and people of our community. We believe by increasing our space, presence in the community, and collaboration with partners through the purchase of
a new building we can help bring the improvement our community is desperately looking for.
