About Us


The Resurrection Project was founded by six churches and concerned neighbors in 1990 to address the rising blight and crime in the Pilsen neighborhood. Each church committed $5,000 in seed funds. Since then, The Resurrection Project has turned that $30,000 seed capital into community investments of more than $250 million.

Ours is a comprehensive approach to community development. Learn more about us below.
