CYP partnered with Feed Chicago and provided seven hundred and fifty (750) hot meals to families and essential workers in the community. We especially want to thank Epic Burger and Beach Burrito for their contributions.
To celebrate our annual Hope Gala, CYP youth and staff wrote and recorded this song to inspire us all to continue to believe in ourselves, and to remember the collective power of coming together.
In a recent survey, 85% of our youth report that they have a trusted adult, volunteer, or mentor from our program that they can depend on. In addition, when asked during our recent long term study, former participants shared that they stayed in the program because they had a consistent and safe relationship with an adult mentor.
