The Resurrection Project (TRP) works to build relationships and create healthy communities, and we’re excited and grateful that our work has made the news again!
On Friday, December 7, The Gate Newspaper ran a feature article on TRP and our work to stabilize Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood through the renovation of 81-units of formerly foreclosed housing as affordable rental and for-sale housing. You can see the online newspaper here. The story gives a brief glimpse into the impact resulting from the $13.5 million TRP is investing in the community through Neighborhood Stabilization Program II funding secured through a national consortium led by Chicanos por la Causa (Arizona).
Our work, however, has never just been about bricks and mortar. Through financial education and counseling, we provide families with free financial wellness workshops, foreclosure prevention counseling, and home purchase programs. One of our Financial Services experts, Rodrigo Carillo, was a speaker at last week’s town hall forum on financial literacy hosted by Univision and sponsored by State Farm. You can see Univisión’s coverage of the event here. The event was a chance for more than 500 people in attendance and hundreds of thousands through their broadcast to hear expert advice on financial wellness and foreclosure prevention.
TRP looks forward to continuing to work with partners and neighbors to improve the financial health of our communities. The Resurrection Project is grateful to The Gate and Univisión for their support of our ongoing mission to create healthy communities!
