United and Vibrant
For nearly half a century, Little Village has been home to a robust Mexican American community. A rich cultural heritage runs through its businesses, restaurants, churches, institutions, and politics, thereby strengthening the neighborhood. We partner with Enlace Chicago and support efforts to engage youth, improve health care access, stimulate business growth, and create pathways to educational achievement.
The Robert R. McCormick Foundation is committed to long-term solutions that pay dividends for generations. The success of our community investments depends on the strength of organizations that have a passion for their neighborhoods. Successful organizations embrace high-impact strategies, steward vibrant networks of residents, businesses, and other community stakeholders, and cultivate resilience.
