We face an unprecedented crisis and in order to meet the needs of our community, we need your help. In the last two weeks, BPNC has checked in with nearly 800 families on the Southwest side to assess their needs.
Our goal is to give $500 in cash assistance, rental assistance, and groceries to 500 families.
Please consider donating to help us meet our goal and ensure that more families on the southwest side are able to survive this crisis.
Chicago’s communities of color are disproportionately impacted by
economic hardship, and anecdotal reports indicate that the current pandemic has accentuated existing inequities. Recognizing the urgency to understand and respond to these resource needs, Brighton Park Neighborhood Council (BPNC) undertook a systematic community needs assessment of BPNC program participants.
