Digital Multimedia Exploration
“I cannot believe IMPACT Family Center is celebrating 10 years of dedicated, transforming service to youth and families on the Southside of Chicago & South Cook County. Time really flies when you’re having fun! It is an honor to serve.
This has been a difficult journey thus far. People just do not support urban teen/youth focused programs. The far Southside of Chicago is a service desert; there are not enough resources for the low-income residents that have no hope or help.
We are a unique agency because our determination never ceases. We strive to make a difference with each encounter. Our measurable results will continue to increase. We are creating leaders. We are simply the wind beneath the wings of those who are destined to soar because they dare to try.”
