Gads Hill Center's programs support and empower the economically and educationally disadvantaged residents in Chicago's Pilsen, Little Village, Back of the Yards, and North Lawndale neighborhoods. Each of these communities lacks resources in education, accessible child and health care, literacy, and general safety.
More than 50 percent of the adults in the neighborhoods we serve have not completed high school; a third of local school students drop out; and students are failing to meet state achievement test standards. Gads Hill Center is dedicated to the issue of educational support and enrichment.
We are a catalyst for positive change in our neighborhoods. Our programs help our neighbors find needed resources and create a safe, caring community.
