The pandemic created significant challenges for children living in vulnerable communities around the world. Children in Chicago’s south side neighborhood of West Englewood are no exception. Months of isolation, housing & food insecurity, increased exposure to violence, and uncertainty for what the future holds impacts social, emotional and mental well-being. Trauma faced by children can continue to affect them throughout their lives. Spark’s support of the Born to Thrive tutoring program, summer camp, and a new computer lab is helping to provide educational & social emotional support for I Grow Chicago’s community. A gift of $500 can provide educational & social emotional-support for one month at I Grow Chicago.
