If you enjoyed this program, please consider making a one time donation to help us continue our mission of interrupting the cycle of violence among youth and young adults in Chicago through the power of arts and faith.

Today educators and institutions are beginning to create conversations around race and discrimination more than ever. We are in development of the Crossroad Viewers Guide and Educational Curriculum that promises to create teachable moments regardless of income, geography, ethnicity, age, or race. This film and accompanying viewers guide will not only raises awareness, but create a space and environment across communities to face and discuss the root cause issues that continue to leave people of color currently and historically marginalized. To learn more about how to be a partner please see the PDF document below. 

The Firehouse Community Art Center, (The Firehouse) has been positively impacting the lives of Chicago youth for the past 11 years. The Firehouse reaches and empowers youth and young adults who are challenged by gangs and violence through arts training in a creative and nurturing environment.  Youth, ages 12 to 25, have the opportunity to engage in workshops centered around music production, dance, graphic arts, computer technology, culinary arts, photography, and entrepreneurship. Additionally, we provide mentoring and counseling with an emphasis on creating responsible and engaged young adults. 

Because of your generous donation, your name will be featured as a "Special Thank You" in the Chicago at the Crossroad Educational Viewers Guide.

Thank you sincerely,

Brian Schodorf and Pastor Phil
