Newly formed Southland RISE collaborative (Resilience Initiative to Strengthen and Empower) has awarded $100,000 to 14 community-based organizations on the South Side and I Grow Chicago is one of them. The grants are meant to support community-based organizations on the South Side that are focused on violence recovery and trauma care services.

It is especially important during the summer months that kids and young people have spaces where they can stay engaged and safe when they are out of school, so thank you to Southland RISE for the recognition and support so that we can continue our programs.
