Building Stronger Communities together

The Brighton Park Neighborhood Network (BPNN) seeks to build the capacity of our community to dramatically improve outcomes for every resident by providing comprehensive support in education, health, and employment. This work is led by community members, social service agencies, and neighborhood schools to create a safe and thriving neighborhood for all. Officially launched with financial support from the United Way of Metro Chicago in 2012, our coalition has evolved from a handful of community partners to a network of over 70 member organizations. This report outlines the community context that led to the emergence of our coalition, the history of the BPNN’s formation and growth, the goals and collective strategies that guide our work, and key accomplishments between 2015 and 2020. To the right is a snapshot of some of our notable achievements in Education, Health, Public Safety, and Financial Stability since 2015.
