THIS IS SO GREAT!! After years of work we finally got our building permit!! This means, in the early part of this year, we can start our buildout of Reach Out Community Center’s permanent home in South Lawndale, Chicago! Check out this short video for some shots of our home (currently) as well as our interior mock ups and some more goodies. A HUGE “thank you” to everyone for their support throughout this process. We truly wouldn’t be here without you.

All the best! -Dorothy Flisk, Founder
