We believe it takes a combination of three key elements to burst through the doors of opportunity and create lasting change. 

We call this The Opportunity Formula. Where hard work + skills + relationships create a hub of opportunity in East Garfield Park. 

Through the Opportunity Formula, we’ve seen families prepare to send their second child to college, first-time entrepreneurs growing businesses, and residents working with their neighbors to improve the community.
