Please remember the needs of our community continue to grow. So our fundraising effort continues as well. Please check out our ‘Donate Now’ page. There you can make contributions through out the year.
The Coalition counts on your ongoing support to continue our youth programming throughout the year. These programs are desperately needed since the community is so low on resources for our children. The community currently does not have a library or youth center to help keep our children safe and off the street.

PEC Monthly Meeting
Every month the Peace and Education Coalition, made up of stakeholders committed to creating a strategy for peace and educational opportunities for the people, gather to have a dialogue about the positive efforts being made in the Back of the Yards neighborhood. Recently, the Coalition has been conversing about the effects of the Presidential Executive orders and how we address our concerns. The Coalition is also planning a Youth Summit, as well as several workshop to accompany the mental health of the community. A “Wellness Summit”, to be held over several weeks of Spring, is being hosted by SOS Children’s Village and San Miguel School covering the areas of: Immigration, Community Violence, The clash of Culture, Financial Empowerment, and General Mental Health.
