Enlace Chicago is dedicated to make a positive difference in the lives of residents of the Little Village community in Chicago by fostering a physically safe and healthy environment in which to live and by championing opportunities for educational advancement and economic development. Through our four program areas, Community Education, Community Enrichment, Economic Development and Violence Prevention Enlace Chicago serves more than 5,000 youth and adults. The organization’s impact reaches well beyond this number and benefits our entire community of nearly 100,000 residents by creating opportunities and resources. Our Education department implements the Community Schools initiative, turning Little Village’s five high schools and three of its middle school into community centers where after-school programming is provided for students and their parents. Our Community Enrichment department focuses on immigration organizing, increasing green spaces in Little Village through the conversion of vacant lots into community gardens, and hosts a summer basketball tournament known as B-Ball-on-the-Block.
