Providing access to living-wage income opportunities through job readiness, training, and long-term mentorship.

“I want to see families resurrecting out of poverty, owning their own homes and businesses, making disciples of their children, and becoming contributors to their community and to the local church. This is what it means for us as an organization to succeed. This is what it means for Chicago to succeed.”

- Kevin Taylor

Native of Cabrini Green Projects and Program Director of UR Chicago
