How You Can Help Us
North Campus started in 2012 as a 4-week summer program with just a dozen students. Today we serve over 200 students year-round in three buildings on our campus. We currently have two other locations under contract, which will allow us to double our capacity to provide much-needed services to over 400 students everyday. As the number of kids we serve grows, so do our needs. Keeping this program running is not easy. We don't have a rich benefactor on our board (though we would love to have one). Alderman French and others are constantly looking for resources -- big and small. Here are some things we need, if you'd like to help.
We always need used couches. For our media lounge where kids watch films and play video games. Or for our reading rooms where students can quietly relax while practicing their reading skills.
We currently have two buildings under contract. Both are old school buildings on our campus. Both contracts are for very good purchase prices. Both loans would be very well collateralized. We are currently seeking financing for the purchase and rehab of these buildings.
We are presently renovating three spaces all in need of kitchen cabinets.
