The management,staff and volunteers of AWOFINC respect the rights of individuals and are sensitive to the challenges that families face on a daily basis.

The Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful Communities has awarded AWOFINC a 2018 grant, one of 132 rapid-response grants to support activities that promote safe and peaceful conditions in 19 prioritized Chicago communities. AWOFINC's Parent Information & Resources, Violence Prevention Consortium and Youth Leadership & Development initiatives seek to identify and establish Community-Based Participatory Partnerships with groups and organizations. The consortium will be actively engaging multiple communities. Find out how you can participate in Leadership Training, Community Engagement, Violence Prevention initiatives as well as youth programs by contacting our office or send a message to any of our cooperating initiatives Facebook pages. This spring summer and fall the Violence Prevention Consortium Safe Spaces Initiative will be working with local organizations and churches in Auburn Gresham, Englewood, Gage Park and Back of the Yards helping those organizations plan and execute activities and initiatives. We would like to speak with you about your organization, its outreach and community initiatives in hopes we can support you in your work.

Might you set aside a time for us to speak with you at your office about this potential community-based participatory partnership? You can contact us directly to schedule an appointment or someone from our team will contact you.
