T. G. Community House in Englewood
Located in the Englewood community on Chicago's south side, we are surrounded by low performing schools, vacant lots, boarded up homes, families in distress and excessive violence. The strength of resources and services provided “on the block” in this site will positively change the trajectory of families in our community. We need your help to cross the FINISH line!
Our Model/Framework: Community Based Participatory Engagement as an Organizational Resident. This paradigm shift in nonprofit community engagement will create micro level services delivered to impact a specific target area in Englewood. We strive to do EVERYTHING in the spirit of excellence!
Impact Area: Using a saturation model, our impact area boundaries for services are:
North: 67th Street South: 77th Street East: Lowe West: Racine
Target Population: D2F will continue to serve girls ages 13-18, however through various partnerships, programs and services will be made available to youth and adults.
We plan to officially open for programming and a day of community service on Monday, January 16th (Dr. King’s Holiday). We are praying for support to complete the following:

Windows need to be replaced in the entire house with the exception of the basement. The frames are rotted and many of the windows are broken. Due to the poor condition of the windows we are experiencing leaks which continue to damage the walls on the first floor. Energy efficient windows will decrease costs for heating and cooling.
