Corazon Community Services (CCS) has been serving the heart of the community of Cicero/Berwyn for over 14 years, providing life-changing and life-saving services for families and youth.
On #GivingTuesday, November 27, 2018, Corazon will be hosting a “Loteria” night where families can participate together, win prizes and learn more about the organization. The day will be filled with activities, raffles, and volunteer opportunities for Cicero youth and families. The community will be able to support our important work in shaping the lives of Cicero’s young people by attending, volunteering, and donating. We encourage everyone to share their giving story on social media; using our hashtag #GiveConTodoElCorazon
Since CCS opened its doors in 2003, the agency has had tremendous impact in Cicero. Monthly, Corazon has serves over 600 individuals through direct services and over 2,000 community members impacted via community education/events. CCS had a direct impact on the reduction of gang violence, the reduction of teen pregnancy, the increase in education and outreach on HIV and helped launch several community initiatives in collaboration with other community partners.
Although committed to providing vital services to young people in the community, for more than 3 years Corazon has had to scale back some of its services due to the effects of the state budget. Every contribution will help restore dollars to the Violence Prevention programs, the Education and Leadership programs and Health services. These services are life-saving and life-changing for Cicero youth and families.
We invite you to join the movement and give this November 27, 2018. Donating and/or volunteering with Corazon Community Services, will help the organization continue to keep its doors open and provide life-changing services to youth in the community.
Please join our cause, every dollar helps!
