Over 200 people came to celebrate the grand opening of I Grow Chicago’s Family Wellness House. Among the attendees, there were local businesses such as Bill’s Grill Mobile BBQ who donated free lunches, community leaders such as Alderman Raymond Lopez and the Director of Bears Care, Marge Hamm. 

Bears Care and the Chicago Bears through the NFL Foundation provided an $80,000 grant for the construction and renovation of the house out of a total $175,000. Englewood residents were also trained and employed during the entire construction and renovation process.
