We Got the Grant!!!

We are happy to announce for the 5th year, FOUS Youth Development Services will be the recipient of The Chicago Fund for Safe & Peaceful Communities grant.
Our project is called Paint the Town Orange. The idea is not original that is attaching a ribbon around a tree, but for this neighborhood, it has never been done. At least, I have never seen it done. The ribbon and orange sign in the windows will represent a safe zone for children and youth. 
We are encouraging the neighborhood to care for its most vulnerable during the summer and when school returns. 

The Chicago Fund for Safe & Peaceful Communities represents 50 funders and foundations committed to aligning their funding to support proven and promising urgent responses to reduce violence.

We are grateful to receive this grant and look forward to the many projects this summer by the other 2020 grantees.
