help heal chicago

“Help Heal Chicago is a database of organizations that work directly with children, families, and community groups in/from Chicago’s violence-afflicted neighborhoods. It is our goal to direct people’s attention to these wonderful, passionate groups that are changing people’s lives.

Our efforts are inspired by Chicago Tribune columnist Dahleen Glanton, who implored readers to do something about Chicago’s violence — anything.

This is our Anything.”
