Grants and more grants!!!
We are happy to announce that for the 8th year, FOUS Youth Development Services will receive the Partnership for Safe & Peaceful Communities (PSPC) Grant 2023.
PSPC represents 50 funders and foundations committed to aligning their funding to support proven and promising urgent responses to reduce violence.
The organization will also receive funding from the City of Chicago. Newly elected Mayor Brandon Johnson, has kept his word. FOUS will provide gap programming this summer in the West Pullman Community. The gap is that Chicago Public Schools end early this year, on 6/6/23. Chicago Park District summer jobs will not begin until 6/27. There is a three-week gap in time when safe activities are needed for children and youth across the City to be made available.
We make quality programming a priority!
