Your Role

We are a movement from trauma to transformation, from harm to hope, and from poverty to possibility. Together, we can heal the hood.

Together we can heal the hood.

I Grow Chicago started in the streets, is supported by the streets, and is transforming the streets of the West Englewood neighborhood in Chicago. A community is making a difference for themselves, their neighbors, and their children. That community is our community, it’s your community, and it will take working together as a community to continue making a difference.


We believe everyone can help where and how they can. There are many ways to champion change with I Grow. Get involved, whether through donations, volunteering, or becoming a community partner.


Whatever your age or skill set, you have something to offer. Mentoring a young person, helping serve food, gathering and delivering needed supplies, or providing a little muscle and elbow grease at events all have impact.
